Lymphadenitis of the maxillofacial region
Lymphadenitis is an inflammation of the lymph nodes. The latter play an important role in ensuring the protective functions of the body, preventing the spread of infections. The most common occurrence is submandibular or cervical lymphadenitis. There are specific and non-specific types of inflammations in question. The difference lies in the causes of the inflammatory process.
Specific lymphadenitis can be caused by:
- dental diseases accompanied by inflammation;
Nonspecific lymphadenitis provoke various infectious diseases. In addition, there are purulent and non-purulent forms, chronic and acute course.
Signs and treatment of lymphadenitis
The cost of lymphadenitis untreated in time can be the spread of infection to other organs and blood. At the first signs of illness, do not postpone a visit to a specialist. Among the main symptoms:
- rapid fatigability;
- decreased or lack of appetite;

The goal of treating lymphadenitis is to eliminate the causes of inflammation. Accordingly, the main attention is paid to the treatment of the main focus of the infection. To improve the condition of the affected lymph node, physiotherapy procedures are prescribed.
With adenophlegmon and purulent lymphadenitis, surgery is indicated. Involves opening the focus with pus. After elimination of exudate, antiseptic treatment of the wound, drainage is placed in the cavity. The latter is necessary for the outflow of the remnants of pus.
