Explanation Of The Results Of The Biopsy Examination?
Good afternoon I want to ask from the results of the biopsy leading to chronic granulomatous lymphadenitis what disease is it? And what is the medicine? thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Lymphadenitis is a condition in which the lymph nodes become inflamed. The lymph node itself is part of the immune system where white blood cells stop and proliferate.
Chronic granulomatous lymphadenitis refers to the results of anatomic pathology examination, where in inflamed lymph nodes found activated macrophage cells form granulomas due to failure to eliminate foreign objects or microorganisms that enter the body. This condition most often arises due to infection (eg tuberculosis, toxoplasmosis, tularemia, cat scratch scratches, yersiniasis), although it can also be caused by other non-infectious causes (eg sarcoidosis).
Clinically, patients with lymphadenitis may show lumps in the body (often around the neck, armpits or groin) whose consistency is springy, easy to move, the size of a marble, and often swollen and painful. Other symptoms, such as fever, decreased appetite, excessive sweating, muscle aches and joints, etc. also often accompany depending on the cause. However, the diagnosis of lymphadenitis and the cause of lymphadenitis should be made not only based on the clinical symptoms that arise, but also by taking into account the results of other tests carried out, including physical examination, biopsy, laboratory, x-rays, ultrasound, and so on.
The right step you need to do right now is, consult your doctor or specialist in internal medicine related to the results of the examination that you have lived. Depending on the cause, your condition can later be treated with a variety, for example by administering drugs, supplements, surgery, and so on.
Hope this helps ...
