When Mycobacterium tuberculosis drains through the lymph fluid to the regional lymph nodes near the neck and collar bone, a reaction can occur where the lymph nodes can swell up; contiguous spread to the collar bone is unusual. If enough lymph nodes are involved around the neck, it can create bumps- not typically tender that is referred to as scrofula. Fever and sweats may also occur.
