  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    Some important situations where specific testing may be important include: Suspected strep throat (fever, lymph nodes in the neck, whitish tonsils, absence of cough), necessitating[rxlist.com]

  • Autosomal Recessive Agammaglobulinemia Type 3

    SCID is typically diagnosed by clinical features: absence of lymph nodes and tonsils, lymphopenia, absence of a thymic shadow on chest x-ray, abnormal T, B, NK cell enumeration[hawaii.edu] This is because most of the bulk of tonsils and lymph nodes is made up of B-lymphocytes. In the absence of B-lymphocytes, these tissues are reduced in size.[primaryimmune.org] Absence or scanty lymphoid tissue such as tonsils and lymph node suggests X-linked agammaglobulinemia (XLA), SCID or complete DiGeorge anomaly.[hawaii.edu]

  • Infectious Mononucleosis

    Lymph node biopsy was performed and he was diagnosed as atypical infectious mononucleosis (absence of fever, pharyngitis, lymphocytosis and negative atypical lymphocytosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On the other hand, the absence of swollen cervical lymph nodes and fatigue are the most useful to dismiss the idea of infectious mononucleosis as the correct diagnosis.[en.wikipedia.org] Physical examination [ edit ] The presence of an enlarged spleen , and swollen posterior cervical , axillary , and inguinal lymph nodes are the most useful to suspect a diagnosis[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Osteoporosis

    F-FDG PET/CT demonstrated mildly FDG-avid lymph nodes consistent for chronic lymphocytic leukemia, as well as FDG-avidity in the right femoral head with corresponding osteopenia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Transient osteoporosis of the hip (TOH) is characterized by bone pain, osteopenia, and bone marrow edema in the absence of trauma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Colitis Cystica Profunda

    Transrectal ultrasonography identifies multiple cysts in the rectal submucosa, with areas of echorefringent fibrosis between cysts, and confirms the absence of lymph node[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of lymph node enlargement.[acgcasereports.gi.org] RESULTS: Transrectal ultrasonography identifies multiple cysts in the rectal submucosa, with areas of echorefringent fibrosis between cysts, and confirms the absence of lymph[link.springer.com]

  • Mantle Cell Lymphoma

    In a small number of cases, however, an indolent form of MCL may be recognized that is distinguished by the absence of lymph node enlargement, which may present a diagnostic[symptoma.com] […] of lymph node involvement.[haematologica.org] Extreme fatigue, an enlarged spleen and diffuse swelling of lymph nodes (known as generalized lymphadenopathy) are typical findings.[symptoma.com]

  • Noninfiltrating Intraductal Carcinoma

    The high frequency of multicentric foci (76%) contrasted with the absence of lymph node involvment (none of the 23 cases in which at least one node was excised, showed lymph[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 2A

    The diagnosis of Men2a at the age of 80 years and the absence of lymph node metastasis of the multiple MTC in a carrier of C634G mutation were unusual and argued for the possible[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of cervical lymph-node metastases, or all of these factors.[nejm.org] […] of lymph-node metastases, the preoperative stimulated plasma calcitonin level, and a specific RET codon mutation.[nejm.org]

  • Early Gastric Cancer

    Expression of E-cadherin, MMP7, HGF, and CD133 at the deep invasive front was associated with the absence of lymph node metastasis (P 0.013, 0.018,  0.001, and 0.026, respectively[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The presence or absence of the metastasis was made by histological examination in a resected lymph node or neighboring organs.[kjim.org] node invasion.[gut.bmj.com]

  • Duodenal Carcinoma

    Notably, intestinal-type histology and the absence of lymph node metastasis were significantly associated with favorable disease-free survival in univariate and multivariate[journals.lww.com] In the absence of lymph node involvement, tumors with a proximal location have a survival rate of between 0 and 25% 5 years after surgery, whereas this rate is 62% for distal[karger.com]
