Clinical Terms

The following are some of the clinical term definitions related or applicable to lymphadenitis within the ICD-10 index for Diseases and Injuries.

Axilla: Area of the human body underneath the SHOULDER JOINT, also known as the armpit or underarm.

Breast: In humans, one of the paired regions in the anterior portion of the THORAX. The breasts consist of the MAMMARY GLANDS, the SKIN, the MUSCLES, the ADIPOSE TISSUE, and the CONNECTIVE TISSUES.

Face: The anterior portion of the head that includes the skin, muscles, and structures of the forehead, eyes, nose, mouth, cheeks, and jaw.

Head: The upper part of the human body, or the front or upper part of the body of an animal, typically separated from the rest of the body by a neck, and containing the brain, mouth, and sense organs.

Hip: The projecting part on each side of the body, formed by the side of the pelvis and the top portion of the femur.

Extremities: The farthest or outermost projections of the body, such as the HAND and FOOT.

Lymphadenitis: Inflammation of the lymph nodes.

Neck: The part of a human or animal body connecting the HEAD to the rest of the body.

Shoulder: Part of the body in humans and primates where the arms connect to the trunk. The shoulder has five joints; ACROMIOCLAVICULAR joint, CORACOCLAVICULAR joint, GLENOHUMERAL joint, scapulathoracic joint, and STERNOCLAVICULAR joint.

Wuchereria bancrofti: A white threadlike worm which causes elephantiasis, lymphangitis, and chyluria by interfering with the lymphatic circulation. The microfilaria are found in the circulating blood and are carried by mosquitoes.
