·What is a medical case report?

·What is an abstract?
Read the abstract of the medical case
lymphadenitis (Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease) after laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric
bypass for morbid obesity: a case report
Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease, or
histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis, is a rare, benign, autoimmune condition
characterized by lymphadenopathy, fever and neutropenia. It is a self-limited
condition of unknown etiology.
We report the case of a
45-year-old Caucasian man with the first known case of Kikuchi disease
associated with dramatic weight loss after bariatric surgery.
Although the association between
Kikuchi disease and bariatric surgery may be entirely coincidental, we
speculate whether the immune dysfunction associated with weight loss may have
played an etiologic role in this process.
