- One hundred children with microbiologically proven nontuberculous mycobacterial cervicofacial lymphadenitis were randomly assigned to excision of the involved lymph nodes, or antibiotic therapy consisting of clarithromycin and rifabutin. The esthetic outcome was rated using a revised and weighted Observer Scar Assessment Scale. The median weighted esthetic outcome in surgical patients was significantly better (30.6) than that for patients treated with antibiotics (42.2).
