Definition of «Lymphadenopathy»

Lymphadenopathy: Abnormally enlarged lymph nodes. Commonly called "swollen glands."

The term "lymphadenopathy" is not as tough as it looks. It is made up of three words: lymph + adeno- (meaning gland) + -pathy (meaning disease) = lymph gland disease. Since most diseased lymph nodes are enlarged, the term has come to mean enlarged lymph nodes.
