Abstract

Objective: Tuberculosis is an important infectious disease which can involve respiratory system and other organs. Lymph nodes are common site for tuberculosis involvement.

Clinical Presentation and Intervention: We report a 30 year old male patient with a draining sinus on neck and lymphadenopathies in the inguinal region. He was improved by a standard medical therapy after being documented with a suggestive pattern for tuberculosis by lymph node biopsy.

Conclusion: cervical Lymph adenopathy is a presentation of tuberculosis. Extra pulmonary tuberculosis should be ruled out via Para clinic studies. Lymph-node biopsy is helpful in this era.
