ALIAGA T, FELIPE; RODRIGUEZ D, JUAN CARLOS  y  FARGA C, VICTORINO. Paradoxical reactions during tuberculosis lymphadenitis treatment. Rev. chil. enferm. respir. [online]. 2016, vol.32, n.2, pp.67-67. ISSN 0717-7348.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73482016000200007.

Lymphadenitis tuberculosis is the most frequent form of non pulmonary tuberculosis. Its incidence has increased in the last years probably because HIV co-infection. Usually manifests like a swelling of lymph nodes in the cervical region without constitutional symptoms. Diagnostics tests yields are poorer than in pulmonary tuberculosis probably due to the scarce bacillus population. Treatment is the same of pulmonary tuberculosis, but paradoxical reactions are far more frequent. These reactions, specially the latest presentations ones very often are treated as recurrence of the disease. Although this is always a possibility, in most cases they are due to an hypersensitivity reaction. In this article we present an illustrative case, an update on tuberculosis lymphadenitis and a review of the paradoxical reactions during its treatment.

Palabras clave : Tuberculous lymphadenitis; lymphadenitis; paradoxical reactions.
