Hi,

They are suggestive of old healed tubercular lymphadenitis after initial caseous necrosis at the centre of lymph nodes, which over time gets calcified. They show as hypo-echoic lesion with central calcification.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Rohan Shanker Tiwari, Orthopedic Surgeon
