Abstract

Even though the prevalence of pulmonary drug resistant tuberculosis is showing an increasing trend globally, only a few case reports of extrapulmonary tuberculosis caused by drug resistant mycobacteria have been documented over the last decade. Extrapulmonary tuberculosis is not infrequent and may cause considerable morbidity and mortality. Tuberculous abscess over chest wall is commonly due to the spread from an adjacent affected lymph node group. Multidrug resistance poses a great challenge to the physicians in managing such a condition and significantly affects the prognosis. Here we report a rare presentation of multidrug resistant tuberculosis as anterior chest wall abscess in a young male.
