Abstract

Palpable neck masses are often the only signs of patients visiting their ENT specialists. Lymphadenopathy may be a primary or secondary manifestation of numerous benign and malignant disorders. The medical history, physical examination, imaging and pathological examination may help to set the appropriate diagnosis. Lymph node infarction is a very rare entity among the various pathologies involving the lymph nodes. We hereby present three cases, in which infarction was the only symptom, no associated condition occurred.
