No, this is not an indication of starting ATT. The lymphnodes could also be acute mesenteric lymphadenopathy. Treat the child for worms, atypical infections. Check HIV. Repeat USG after 25-20 days and see what has happened to the lymphnodes. Follow up the child regularly to see if she develops andy symptoms of TB.
