Abstract

Skeletal muscle tuberculosis without underlying osseous or extra osseous involvement is an extremely rare presentation of tuberculosis. We describe a case of tuberculous abscess of brachialis muscle in a 13 year old boy. Diagnosis was established by PCR and histology. The patient was on standard four-drug regimen with no evidence of disease activity at the three month follow-up.
