Kings evil

The historic designation for scrofula (tuberculosis, lymph node). The disease is so called from the belief that it could be healed by the touch of a king. This term is used only for historical articles using the name king's evil, and is to be differentiated from scrofula as lymph node tuberculosis in modern clinical medicine.
