begins with catarrhal hyperplastic lymphadenitis, then purulent infiltration of the node and the formation of a number of small foci, which merge, resulting in the melting of the lymph node. Involvement in the purulent process of its capsule and surrounding tissues leads to the development of adenophlegmon. With putrid phlegmon of the oral cavity, paradentitis, gangrenous angina, and other lymph nodes may be affected by a gangrenous process with putrid decay (putrid lymphadenitis).
Treatment:It is determined by the treatment of primary and secondary foci of inflammation and the general effect on the body. Treatment methods can be divided into three groups:
1. Inhibition of microflora in the primary focus and lymph nodes - the use of antibiotics, sulfonamides, nitrofurans, etc.
2. Surgical - opening and drainage of the primary purulent focus and purulent lymphadenitis.
3. Increase the body's defenses and reduce intoxication. The use of antibiotics for lymphadenitis sometimes achieved a quick cure.
