Abstract

SUMMARY

Acute cervical adenitis was investigated in 26 children over a 33-month period. Lymph nodes were aspirated and cultured to yield or group-A streptococci or both from 22 (84.6%) of the aspirates. was isolated from one child.

By combined culture and serial serological tests (antistreptolysin-0, antiDNAase B, and anti-NADase), 50% of the cases were found to be associated with streptococcal infection. In a few children, was the only organism recovered, and appeared to be the aetiological agent.
