PMID:  430579     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
One hundred and thirty-nine cases of pathologically involved cervical lymph nodes have been reviewed, and granulomatous lymphadenitis found in 29 patients (20.9 per cent). There were two cases of sarcoidosis, 10 of tularemia, five patients (3.6 per cent) had tuberculous lymphadenitis and 12 (8.7 per cent) fulfilled commonly accepted criteria for infection with atypical mycobacteria. The clinical features of the latter condition, which is probably insufficiently recognized, are reviewed, and surgery is recommended as the primary treatment modality.
