Discussions that mention phenytoin

Back Problems board


Are there lymph nodes on the back? I've always thought of them as being on the neck, armpit, and groin. But the lymph system, which is part of the immune system, travels throughout the body. Anyway, lymph nodes will swell in response to irritation or infection, and I've read that some medications such as phenytoin (for seizures) can cause swollen lymph nodes. Just a thought.
