Answer

Outpatients should be instructed to return for a follow-up evaluation to ensure resolution of lymphadenopathy in 2-4 months. Patients should return to care sooner if their condition worsens or the lymph node starts to suppurate. Closely follow up patients for 6 months or until the lymphadenopathy resolves.
