, : Enlarged cervical lymph node due to African histoplasmosis. Journal of Laryngology and Otology 102(10): 945-946

A case is reported in a 43-yr-old woman who presented with a 3-yr history of a lump in the right side of her neck. The patient had suffered frequent throat infections and sore gums during this period. The symptoms arose following a 2 month holiday in the Gambia when a 'flu'-like illness had occurred with pyrexia and malaise. Examination revealed a smooth firm mobile lump, 3.5 x 2.5 cm, at the position of the right jugulo-digastric lymph node.
