Shotty vs. Shoddy

by Carin on December 27, 2010

Is it shotty or shoddy lymphadenopathy?

Shotty is something that is scattered and lumpy similar to buckshot when it hits its target.  Shotty lymphadenopathy would then be lymph nodes that are scattered and lumpy.

Shoddy is something that is cheap and/or inferior (would not pertain to lymphadenopathy.

Hope this helps!

When you really think about it this one is easy to figure out. It’s nice to have the difference noted and then you don’t even have to think about it you just type it.
