Ten cases of adenopathy, 7 inflammatory and 3 lymphomatous in origin, with visible increased blood flow on color flow Doppler examination are presented. Although the ultrasonic demonstration of blood vessels in enlarged lymph nodes, both inflammatory and tumoral, is not new [1-5], we believe that this is the 1st definitive documentation with color flow Doppler. In some cases the degree of flow was striking, reflecting high velocity flow. This occurred both with inflammatory and lymphamatous nodes and we present our findings 1st to bring attention to them and 2nd to stimulate further investigation of the phenomenon.
