Cervical lymphadenopathy due to mycobacterial infection: a diagnostic protocol


Cervical lymphadenopathy due to mycobacterial infection: a diagnostic protocol

Mycobacterial cervical lymphadenopathy is relatively uncommon in the United Kingdom; when cases do occur opportunities for early diagnosis and treatment may be missed. We have reviewed twenty-three cases of mycobacterial cervical lymphadenopathy presenting to an urban general hospital over a four-year period. We discuss the techniques available to aid a diagnosis of mycobacterial disease and suggest a protocol to allow efficient use of these techniques.
