Journal Title:Acta Scientific Otolaryngology
Abstract


Tuberculosis is one of the principal causes of disease and mortality in the world, occurs in children and adults, as an acute, sub-acute, or chronic infectious disease which affects all tissues of the body and represents approximately 80% of tuberculosis cases in adults. Of the forms of extrapulmonary tuberculosis, the most frequent location is lymphatic and is rarer in the ENT area but is still an important form of extrapulmonary tuberculosis, which makes it an important clinical and diagnostic challenge to the otolaryngolo-gist. The diagnosis of disease must be demonstrated by the culture of Mycobacterium tuberculosis or by histology.Keywords: Tuberculosis (TB); Mycobacterium tuberculosis; Otorhinolaryngology
