Toxoplasmosis: Toxoplasmosis is a disease caused by the Toxoplasma gondii parasite. Symptoms are flu-like and may last for a few weeks. Severe infections may cause seizures, brain impairments, eye problems, and even death. Pyrimethamine, sulfadiazine, and folinic acid are used to treat most patients with toxoplasmosis.

Types of conditions that involve swollen lymph nodes include infection, virus, inflammation, or cancers. Symptoms of swollen lymph nodes depend upon the location. Treatment of swollen lymph nodes also depends upon the location and reason for the enlargement.
