(ăd′n-ī′tĭs)
n.
Inflammation of a lymph node or gland.

adenitis

[ad′ənī′tis]
an inflammation of a lymph node. Acute adenitis of the cervical lymph nodes may accompany a sore throat and stiff neck, simulating mumps if severe. It is most often related to an oral, a pharyngeal, or an ear infection. Scarlet fever may cause acute suppurative cervical adenitis. Swelling of the lymph nodes in the back of the neck is often the result of a scalp infection, insect bite, or infestation by head lice. Inflammation of the lymph nodes of the mesenteric portion of the peritoneum often produces pain and other symptoms similar to those of appendicitis, but characteristically mesenteric adenitis is preceded by respiratory infection, the pain is less localized and less constant than in appendicitis, and the pain does not increase in severity. Generalized adenitis is a secondary symptom of syphilis. Therapy requires treatment of the primary infection by the administration of antimicrobial agents, application of warm compresses, and when fluctuation is present, incision and drainage. Also called lymphadenitis. Compare acinitis.
