Özet

Peripheral lymphadenopathy is frequently encountered in children, but it is difficult to determine the etiology. Our aim in this study was to evaluate the risk of malignancy in childhood peripheral lymphadenopathy, determine the factors accompanying a malignant etiology and find out which additional findings strongly indicate malignancy.
