Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease (KFD), also known as histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis, is a relatively rare condition characterized by subacute necrotizing regional lymphadenopathy.
She also had an axillary lymph node biopsy, which showed necrotizing lymphadenitis with a positive polymerase chain reaction analysis for Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), favoring Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease.
These findings were consistent with necrotizing lymphadenitis of KFD.
In one case report, Salmonella Typhi was isolated from the blood of a 20-year-old Korean woman with persistent fever, headache, myalgia and cervical lymphadenopathy, with this patient finally diagnosed with necrotizing lymphadenitis due to Salmonella Typhi [14].
Findings of extensive necrosis have a high positive predictive value and correlate with presence of malignancy; however, similar findings have been reported with infectious process and other rare conditions such as histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis. Necroptosis has been documented as a line of defense against intracellular infections; it has also been implicated in a variety of disease states like ischemia, which could explain the mechanisms of necrosis in cases of malignancy like our patient [6, 7].
Necrotizing lymphadenitis: Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease alias lupus lymphadenitis?.
On the basis of the presence or absence of granulomas, caseous necrosis, and neutrophilic infiltration, tubercular lymph nodes were classified into four cytomorphological categories: caseating epithelioid granulomas (showed epithelioid granulomas and caseous necrosis.), granulomatous lymphadenitis (showed only epithelioid granulomas without caseous necrosis), necrotizing lymphadenitis (showed caseous necrosis only without epithelioid granulomas), and necrotizing suppurative lymphadenitis (showed plenty of polymorphs, necrotic debris with or without epithelioid granulomas).
Methylotroph infections in CGD patients typically result in elevated inflammatory markers and lymphadenopathy, which may progress to necrotizing lymphadenitis with or without abscess formation.
Kikuchi-Fujimoto Disease or Necrotizing Lymphadenitis is a rare, benign, self-limiting disease.
Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease (KFD) is histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis, first described by Dr Masahiro Kikuchi in 1972 in Japan.
