A Clnicopathological study of 100 consecutive cases with superficial lyinphadenopathy, who were clinically diagnosed as cases of tuberculous adenitis at peripheral health institutions is reported. Tubercular aetiology was confirmed in 77 cases whereas 18 had non-specific lymphadenitis, Secondary malignant deposits accounted for 5 cases. Tubercular glands were found mostly in 11 to 30 years age group, non-specific glands were predominant in children and ncoplastic deposits in patients over 40 years of age. Caseation suggests tubercular aetiology. However, its absence does not exclude tuberculosis.
