Thank you for posting your query and the details. However you have not provided details of the biopsy
report to guide you. As the pediatric surgeon has put him on anti-tuberculous drugs I presume the biopsy report must be suggestive of tuberculosis
. In the initial stages there may not be signs of weight loss
, fever, etc.
Another common cause for shotty lymph
nodes in the back of neck is lice infestation
of the head which should be excluded.
I hope I have answered the query to your satisfaction. Please revert with any information that you may like to share.
Wishing your son all the best.
