Infected node: Supraclavicular nodes are either primarily involved with infectious process derived from lung but ruled out by chest film. Occassional neoplastic spread to node can cause necrosis but more frequently enlarges. Best approach is to biopsy node and culture the necrotic area. Cause if no malignancy present will be detemined by organism grown out.
