Abstract

Cat-scratch disease (CSD) is one of the most common causes of infectious cervicofacial lymphadenopathies in children, adolescents, and young adults. With this case report, we highlight the wide spectrum of atypical manifestations of CSD in an elderly patient who presented not only with cervicofacial lymphadenopathies but also parotid enlargement, and Parinaud's oculoglandular syndrome which comprises granulomatous nonsuppurative conjunctivitis with adjacent ipsilateral preauricular lymphadenopathy. A high index of suspicion is needed to correctly diagnose and treat this clinical entity. © Copyright 2020 by Official Journal of the Turkish Society of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery.
