Abstract: Lymphadenopathy refers to any disease process involving lymph nodes that are abnormal in size and consistency. Cervical lymphadenopathy is common in the pediatric population, with estimates of 38% to 45% of otherwise healthy children having palpable lymphadenopathy.1The aim of the study was to determine common causes of lymphadenopathy in childrens and mode of management This study was conducted over one year period from JUNE 2017 to MAY 2018 at SKIMS -MCH and phc -GMC Srinagar to evaluate children with lymphadenopathy.The study included all children diagnosed as persistent lymphadenopathy. Age, gender, and accompanying diseases of the patients were assessed. The population was children with CLA (lymph node of ≥ 10 millimetres) were aged between 1-14 years .Patients with cervical abscess or who were previously investigated for lymphadenopathy were excluded. A total of 90 patients with CLA were included in this study .The jugulodigastric and the submandibular lymph nodes were the two most common enlarged nodes in 75% of children.We found that in 52 children ( 58%) the lymph nodes regressed in size over 2 weeks time and in 25children (28%) they regressed in 4 weeks time as proved by ultrasonic examination. USG and FNAc showed reactive lymphoid hyperplasia in these 33 children. In all of them complete blood count, blood film, ESR and CXRs were normal. Ultrasound showed enlarged lymph nodes with homogenous echotexture in all of them. Our observation indicates also that most cases of lymphadenopathy are self-limited and require no treatment. Failure of resolution after 4 weeks might be an indication for diagnostic histology. The differential diagnosis for cervical lymphadenopathy in children is broad, and a thorough history, physical examination and if need laboratory and radiological investigations are important in identifying the correct diagnosis.The approach to a patient with lymphadenopathy of head and neck region should not only focus on lymphadenopathy ,but additional steps towards determining the etiology need to be improved.
