A Case of Primary Nasal Tuberculosis in 40-Year-Old Man


Bharti Thaker*, Subhash Bhardwaj and Kailash Singh Thaker

Nasal tuberculosis is a rare clinical entity even in areas with high incidence of tuberculosis. Due to its rarity and no specific clinical presentation its timely diagnosis as well as proper management often gets delayed. Therefore here we report a case of primary nasal tuberculosis in a 40-year-old male presented with nasal obstruction, epistaxis and recurrent cold since past 2 years. This case report would further emphasize that Nasal tuberculosis should always be kept as one of the differential diagnosis in chronic nasal symptoms and in granulomatous lesions of the nose; so that patient may be given appropriate and timely treatment.
