Abstract

The presence of axillary enlarged lymph nodes in the follow-up of a woman with a history of breast cancer should always be thoroughly indagated. Dermatopathic lymphadenopathy presents a specific pathologic pattern found within the lymph nodes and is usually associated with cutaneous rashes. Patients with various skin conditions can develop regional lymphadenopathy, which can result in the asymptomatic enlargement of the lymph nodes, especially in the inguinal, axillary and cervical regions. Dermatopathic lymphadenopathy should be considered in the differential diagnosis also in patients with minimal cutaneous findings. Dermatopathic lymphadenopathy is a benign process and management of these patients consists in simple clinical, mammographic and ultrasonographic follow-up.
