Abstract

Tuberculosis verrucosa cutis is a common form of cutaneous tuberculosis. Most cases of tuberculosis verrucosa cutis appear as secondary infections of skin, however concomitant primary internal organ involvement rarely occurs. To our knowledge, only three cases of coexistence of tuberculosis verrucosa cutis and pulmonary tuberculosis have been reported in literatures to date. We report on another case of tuberculosis verrucosa cutis, which occurred in a middle-aged, Korean woman with pulmonary tuberculosis, and review the literatures.
