Isolated tuberculosis of cervical lymph nodes
Robert Bilewicz, Tadeusz Pietrykowski, Andrzej Marszałek, Paweł Burduk

Introduction. A long-term observation of incidence of all
forms of tuberculosis in Poland shows systematic decrease of
morbidity rates since 1957. During recent years, however, there
has been an increase in the number of cases of extrapulmonary
tuberculosis. Cervical lymph node tuberculosis has been most
often diagnosed in those cases.
Case report. Report cases of extrapulmonary tuberculosis
as an isolated, rare form of this disease in the cervical lymph
nodes. The study reports three cases of isolated cervical lymph
node tuberculosis in three female patients aged 32-84 yrs. Final
diagnoses of tuberculosis were made in all cases after histological
examination of removed lymph nodes. The specific treatment
was effective in all cases. Follow-up did not show recurrence
of the disease.
Conclusions. Tuberculosis ought to be considered as the
primary disease in differential diagnosis of cervical tumors.
Combined histopathologic and microbiologic examinations are
always required to diagnose this disease.
