Abstract

In this case report, the authors discuss a patient with a rare entity, Kikuchi Fujimoto Disease, which exhibited unique osteopathic structural examination findings, including enlarged cervical lymph nodes in conjunction with a Chapman reflex (CR). This report highlights the critical importance of histological examination of the lymph nodes. Additionally, it reminds physicians to consider the ways in which CR can potentially contribute to the diagnostic process.
