Anatomically-based differential diagnosis for carotid sheath pathology * Lymph nodes: Metastatic cervical adenopathy
, inflammatory, lymphoma (Figure 7B).
However, incidence of tubercular lesions such as adenopathy
and paravertebral abscess is greater (18%) in this study.
3] It is a self-limiting disease that characteristically manifests as painless bilateral cervical adenopathy
accompanied by fever, leucocytosis, an elevated ESR and hypergammaglobulinaemia.
A cervicothoracoabdominal CT demonstrated posterior mediastinal, lomboaortic, and laterocervical adenopathy
, but no parenchymal masses.
Differential diagnosis on imaging would include tuberculosis, lymphoma, metastatic adenopathy
, primary parotid tumors, angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (ALHE), and cat-scratch disease [Table 2].
The arthritis of our patient resembled sarcoidosis, but there was no sign such as hilar adenopathy
or pulmonary infiltration on the chest X-ray that could support this diagnosis.
A 32-year old patient was diagnosed in 2003 (at the age of 22) with a stage IIB nonseminomatous testicular tumor, by the occurrence and progression of a right testicular mass, inter-aortico-caval adenopathy
(cN2) and slightly elevated [beta]-hCG and AFP (S1).
The abdominal exam should focus on the presence or absence of ascites (fluid wave), an omental mass, or inguinal adenopathy
in patients with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the upper aerodigestive tract is assumed to represent nodal metastasis and is treated with therapeutic neck dissection.
Position of adenopathy
was confirmed on axial and coronal plane CT using the cross-referencing cross-hair (Fig.
Our case is probably the first of its kind, having locally advanced cervical cancer, paraaortic adenopathy
and a pelvic kidney.
Sarcoidosis frequently presents with bilateral hilar adenopathy
and pulmonary infiltration and often with ocular and skin lesions.
The results apply only to a subgroup of patients with the clinical characteristics of those in the trial: stage T1-T2 breast cancer with no palpable adenopathy
and one or two sentinel nodes treated with breast-conserving surgery, whole-breast irradiation, and adjuvant systemic therapy.
It revealed, among other things, the existence of adenopathy
of uncertain etiology.
Patients were women with T1-T2 (stage of tumor) invasive breast cancer, no palpable adenopathy
(enlarged lymph nodes), and 1 to 2 SLNs containing metastases.
