adenitis, ad-en-ī′tis, n. inflammation of the lymphatic glands.
adenitis takes place in the submaxillary, retro-maxillary, and sublingual glands of the affected side.
The glands do not suppurate, but the adenitis may remain as a chronic manifestation in scrofulous subjects.
Children suffering from adenitis should use a spray of Dobell's solution in the nose and throat three or four times daily.
The disease is then an adenitis, an inflammation of gland-tissue—tonsillitis per se.
The adenitis and peri-adenitis is of secondary nature, the irritation being in the mouth, pharynx, and nares.
adenitis, or suppuration of the glands, has just been mentioned.
