Answer

Another interesting finding from this series was evidence of recurrent CSD. Three of the patients in the severe disease category experienced recurrences at 4- to 20-month intervals. One patient presented with recurrent cervical lymphadenitis, whereas the other 2 patients experienced systemic symptoms with periodic fever, malaise, headache, and weight loss. In one patient, the episodes lasted 1-3 months, with a 20-month interval, while the second patient experienced similar episodes with a 10-month interval.
