Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The principal lymphatic drainage of the scalp is into the posterior cervical lymph chain. Recent experiences in the differential diagnosis of neck mass have implicated the scalp as a common source of cervical lymphadenopathy. Specific attention is drawn to a popular ethnic headdress called "corn-rows" as a source of dependent lymphadenitis.
