Abstract

Cutaneous tuberculosis can present as either primary or secondary infection, or it can be associated with systemic tuberculosis. It can present with unusual clinical and histological features causing delay in diagnosis and treatment. Tuberculosis verrucosa cutis occurs as a single verrucous lesion over exposed areas of the body along with inflammatory borders and discharging sinus. Here, we are presenting a rare case of tuberculosis verrucosa cutis developing over a keloid. There is no report of such case in literature so far. Key words: Cutaneous tuberculosis, keloid, tuberculosis verrucosa cutis
