Abstract

Tuberculosis is one of the biggest health challenge, the world is facing. Cervical lymphadenitis is a common manifestation of mycobacterial infections encountered in otorhinolaryngologic practices. It may be the manifestation of a systemic tuberculous disease or a unique clinical entity localized to neck. It remains a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge because it minimizes other pathological processes and eyelids in consistent physical and lab findings. A high index of suspicion is needed for the diagnosis of mycobact cervical lymphadenitis and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a cervical mass especially in endemic areas.

Key words: Cervicofacial masses; lymphadenopathy FNAB; HPE; developmental malformations; cystic lesions.
