My daughter is 3 and developed a swollen, hard lymph node
under her chin
, with high fever for almost 2 wks. She was put on 4 different anitbiotics. Fin
ally fever went away, but lymph node stayed huge, over 2 1/2 cm. Then it abscessed. Doctor performed surgery to drain
it and said the lymph node was mushy and dead. They performed CBC, fin
ally, and biopsy. CBC results were: WBC 24,000 w/ Neu 80%, Lymph 12%. Low RBC and hemoglobin
and hemotcrit. No results from biopsy yet.
