Tuberculosis of the Breast in an Adolescent Girl: A Rare Presentation

Show Summary Details

Preview

Tuberculosis (TB) of the breast is a rare condition and usually affects women in the reproductive age group. Its further rarity in children, even in India, where TB is rampant, poses challenges in its diagnosis. Histopathology plays an important role in the diagnosis of this condition. We report a case of TB of the breast in a 15-year-old girl proven by histopathological study.
