Abstract

Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis is a well recognised pathogen of farm animals, particularly sheep and goats. Human infection is a rare occurrence. This report describes suppurative lymphadenitis occurring in an adolescent boy who had contact with farm animals. The histological differential diagnosis of suppurative granulomatous lymphadenitis is discussed, and the importance of lymph node culture is stressed.
