Resumen

OSORES PLENGE, Fernando et al. Lymph node Mycosis: report of 7 cases at the Hospital NacionalCayetano Heredia Lima-Perú and Review of the Literature. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2004, vol.15, n.4, pp. 211-217. ISSN 1729-214X.

Objective: Describe clinical, mycological and histopathological characteristics of a series of patients with lymph node mycosis. Material and Methods: All patients here described were attended at the Hospital Nacional Cayetano Heredia in Lima between January 2003 and January 2004. These patients participated in a study on the accuracy of a diagnostic test for tuberculosis but got a definite diagnosis of lymph node mycosis. Results: Of 154 patients with lymphadenopathy evaluated during the study period, 7 were diagnosed with lymph node mycosis. Two were immunocompetent patients and 5 had immune suppression, one because of lymphoma and 4 because of HIV infection. Conclusions: There can be a strong resemblance between lymph node mycosis and lymphadenopathy caused by other infectious and non infectious diseases. (Rev Med Hered 2004;15:211-217).
