Patient's Query

Hi doctor, Thank you for the reply. Yes, doctor, as per the reports, tubercular cervical lymph nodes are there, and what does it mean? Also, I do not have any respiratory symptoms. I do not have any weight loss or fever. Please suggest some treatment. Thank you.


Welcome back to icliniq.com. Thank you for your follow-up question on icliniq. Tubercular cervical lymph nodes mean TB (tuberculosis) infection in neck lymph nodes. We all have lymph nodes in our bodies. When they enlarge, it is mostly due to an infection. So we do FNAC (fine needle aspiration cytology) to identify the infection. In this case, FNAC reveals TB infection. So you have a Tubercular cervical lymph node. I suggest starting the following drugs, 1. Rcinex (Rifampicin and Isoniazid) tablet (600/300). 2. Tablet Pyzina (Pyrazinamide) (1500 mg). 3. Tablet Combutol (Ethambutol) (1200 mg). All tablets should be taken after breakfast in the morning for two months. Then, I suggest repeating the ultrasound neck to identify a reduction in the size of lymph nodes. I suggest continuing with Rcinex and Combutol after two months and stopping Pyzina after two months. The total treatment duration is six to eight months. I hope this helps. Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
