According to histopathological studies the etiology of 215 cases of chronic cervical lymphadenopathy was : tuberculous lymphadenitis 59 (27 percent), non-specific lymphadenitis 135 (63 percent), malignant group 10 (5 percent) and miscellaneous group 11 (5 percent). Diagnosis on the basis of clinical features alone was found to be erroneous in the majority of patients. However, discharging cutaneous sinus, whenever present was a feature of tuberculous group. Mantoux (Mx) test was positive in 87 percent of tuberculous children below 5 years of age. Chest X-ray revealed parenchymatous lesions in 28.8 percent of tuberculous cases.

Atypical mycobacterial lymphadenitis could be confirmed by bacteriological examination only
