Palpable lymph nodes of the neck in Swedish schoolchildren.

Acta Paediatrica 1994 October
We studied 3592 Swedish schoolchildren, 8 or 9 years old, examined for palpable submandibular, cervical and supraclavicular lymph nodes. All children were skin tested with 2 TU PPD RT23 and with 0.1 microgram of Mycobacterium avium sensitin or 0.1 microgram of M. scrofulaceum sensitin. A total of 991 children had palpable lymph nodes in any of the three locations. Among them, 811 had lymph nodes in one location, 162 in two locations and 18 in three. In 312 children, the lymph nodes were > or = 5 mm in size in any location. The most common location was submandibular. Boys had a significantly higher prevalence of palpable lymph nodes than girls. There was also seasonal variation. Children infected by atypical mycobacteria (sensitin reaction > or = 6 mm) did not have a higher prevalence of palpable lymph nodes than those not infected.
