Tuberculosis of cervical lymph nodes

Cervical lymph node tuberculosis is called "scrofula" in traditional Chinese medicine, which is more common in children and young people. Generally, it causes disease when the disease resistance of human body is low. Most of the tuberculous rods were invaded by tonsils and caries, and a few tuberculosis secondary to lung or bronchi. There may be multiple enlarged lymph nodes of different sizes on one or both sides of the neck. At the initial stage, the swollen lymph nodes are hard, painless and can be pushed. When the lesion develops, due to perilymphadenitis, it adheres to the skin and surrounding tissues, and each lymph node can also adhere to each other and fuse into a mass. In the late stage, caseous necrosis and liquefaction of lymph nodes occur, forming cold abscess. After ulceration, pus like bean dregs or rice soup can flow out, and finally form a long-lasting sinus or chronic ulcer.
