The role of abdominal ultrasound in hematological diseases.

At the time of primary diagnosis, hematological diseases often present with unspecific symptoms, and abdominal sonography is performed as part of the initial diagnostic work-up. The detection of an ...

Echogenic lymph nodes in the differential diagnosis of pediatric sarcoidosis.

We present a delayed diagnosis of sarcoidosis in an 11-year-old girl by demonstrating ultrasonographic imaging findings of granulomatous cervical and abdominal lymph node involvement. Pulmonary inters...

Diffusion weighted magnetic resonance imaging is a feasible method for characterizing regional lymph nodes in canine patients with head and neck disease.

In dogs diagnosed with solid tumors, regional lymph node involvement or evidence of distant metastasis can predict worse prognoses and significantly decreased survival. Lymph node size alone has been ...

Diagnostic Value of Arrival Time Parametric Imaging Using Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasonography in Superficial Enlarged Lymph Nodes.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the value of arrival-time parametric imaging for differential diagnosis of superficial enlarged lymph nodes.

Does postoperative prophylactic irradiation of para-aortic lymph nodes reduce the risk of recurrence in uterine cervical cancer with positive pelvic lymph nodes?

In cervical cancer, para-aortic lymph nodes are common sites of metastasis. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the clinical benefits of prophylactic irradiation as postoperative therapy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Infection of the lymph nodes by tuberculosis. Tuberculous infection of the cervical lymph nodes is scrofula.

A leukemia affecting young children characterized by SPLENOMEGALY, enlarged lymph nodes, rashes, and hemorrhages. Traditionally classed as a myeloproliferative disease, it is now considered a mixed myeloproliferative-mylelodysplastic disorder.

Edema due to obstruction of lymph vessels or disorders of the lymph nodes.

Surgical excision of one or more lymph nodes. Its most common use is in cancer surgery. (From Dorland, 28th ed, p966)

A chronic leukemia characterized by abnormal B-lymphocytes and often generalized lymphadenopathy. In patients presenting predominately with blood and bone marrow involvement it is called chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL); in those predominately with enlarged lymph nodes it is called small lymphocytic lymphoma. These terms represent spectrums of the same disease.
