FALSE LEUKAEMIA. (Pseudo-Leukaemia)





Category: Diseases of The Blood And Ductless Galnds

Also called Hodgkin's disease,
malignant lymphoma, and general lymphadenoma. This is a progressive anemia
and enlargement of the lymph glands and the skin, with secondary lymphoid
growth in the liver, spleen and other organs.

Causes. Males are more affected than females, and usually young persons.
Continual local irritation causes a local enlargement of the gland, but
the actual cause is unknown.

[BLOOD AND DUCTLESS GLANDS 253]

Symptoms. The lymph glands of the neck, arm-pit or groin are enlarged and
without any pain, followed by anemia, loss of strength and slight fever.
The glands enlarge slowly or rapidly, forming large masses, while the
growth extends to other regions. The spleen may be felt; the skin may be
bronzed. In cases with involvement of deep seated nodes the first symptoms
may be those of pressure on blood vessels, nerves, trachea, bronchial
tubes or other structures.

Treatment. Cut them out if they are small and localized. Arsenic,
quinine, cod-liver oil are good medicines.
