Cervical lymphadenopathy in a Child – An unusual presentation of filariasis
      Dr Arpita Jindal, Dr Deepti Sukheeja, Dr Manojit Midya
Abstract: Clinical manifestations of lymphatic filariasis depend on the area of lymphatic involvement and the duration of infection. An eight year old child presented with right cervical lymph node. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) with 22 Gauge needle from the lymph node revealed multiple coiled larvae of Wuchereria bancrofti in a background of reactive lymphoid cells with eosinophils. Diagnosis of right cervical Bancroftian lymphadenopathy was made. The case was followed by excisional biopsy of the lymph node and hence was confirmed histopathologically. We report this case because cervical lymphadenopathy is a rare presentation of filariasis in children.
