The radiologist is speaking out with anonymity because he fears he will lose his job for reporting these vaccine-related observations. In his practice, the radiologist sees about one case of unexplained adenopathy every six months. However, once the covid-19 vaccines were rolled out, the radiologist has seen two to three cases of unexplained adenopathy per day! This is a 360-fold increase of a rare condition, and this is his most conservative estimate.
The human body contains approximately six hundred lymph nodes. These lymph nodes carry lymph and are an integral part of the human “immune system.” The fluids that pass through the body’s tissues are first filtered through the lymph nodes. The lymphatic system is responsible for providing white blood cells in order to help fight off infectious bacteria and viruses. If the lymph nodes and glands are swollen, it often indicates the body is fighting off an infection, like a common cold. Swollen lymph nodes are often accompanied by runny nose, sore throat, earache, fever and tiredness. The swelling could also indicate a more serious infection like strep, Lyme or HIV.
An infection is not the only cause of adenopathy. Certain medications such as Phenytoin are known to cause adenopathy. An injury anywhere in the body can cause edema, causing the lymph nodes to swell up near the site of injury.
Autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis can cause inflammation in the lymph nodes, the joints and other organs, causing adenopathy. Lupus is another autoimmune disease that causes inflammation of the lymph nodes, the skin, the organs and the joints. Swollen lymph nodes could also be the result of sarcoidosis. This inflammatory disease is diagnosed when inflammatory cells (called granulomas) grow in different parts of the body, including the lungs.Radiologist reports a 360-fold increase in adenopathy following covid vaccinations – Dr. Eddy Bettermann MD
