Tuberculosis (TB) is familiar to human beings since the prehistoric ages. India has more tuberculosis patients than any other country has. In the year 2000 alone, an estimated 8.3 million new cases of TB has been noted in India. TB is an important public health problem in India, and considerable effort is being devoted to the diagnosis and management of this condition An attempt is being made to lower the overall disease burden in the community. Delay in the diagnosis and treatment often prolong the infectious phase for these patients. Suboptimal treatment (Improper drug Regimens, poor adherence to treatment, drug availability, etc) often compounds this problem. An unusual case of tuberculosis of the skin on the lower chest wall was recently noted in our department, the diagnosis of which was made, based on the clinical symptoms, culture of the pus and on the histological examination of the skin. The lesion resolved in response to chemotherapy.
