    Cutaneous tuberculosis (CTB) is an uncommon form of extrapulmonary tuberculosis (TB). It is characterized as an invasion of the skin by Mycobacterium tuberculosis and, less commonly, Mycobacterium bovis and the bacilli Calmette-Guerin vaccine. Cutaneous TB is rare despite the high prevalence of TB worldwide. The highest incidence of CTB is in underdeveloped, resource-poor . Cutaneous tuberculosis Francisco G. Bravo, MD*, Eduardo Gotuzzo, MD Scrofuloderma is the most common form of cutaneous TB seen in many developing countries4,7 and in some European series.3 It is caused by the continuous propagation of infection from an underlying structure, most common-.

    The skin weighs an average of four kilograms, covers an area of two square meters, and is made of three distinct layers: the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous tissue. The two main types of human skin are: glabrous skin, the hairless skin on the palms and soles (also referred to as the "palmoplantar" surfaces), and hair-bearing skin. OBJECTIVE: We report the clinical, histopathologic, and bacteriologic data of 11 patients with several forms of cutaneous tuberculosis seen during the past 14 years. METHODS: Patients from whom M. tuberculosis was isolated from culture of skin biopsy specimens, sinus drainage, or material aspirated from cutaneous abscesses were included.

tuberculosis or M. bovis infection, comprising approximately only 1 to 2% of all TB cases (47,(64)(65)(66)(67). Cutaneous tuberculosis is caused by infection by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. There have been various methods of classifying infection. Traditionally infection has been divided into primary infection, where there has been no previous exposure to the organism, and secondary tuberculosis, resulting from re-infection.

Histology of cutaneous tuberculosis. Cutaneous tuberculosis occurs rarely, despite a high and increasing prevalence of tuberculosis worldwide. Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Mycobacterrium bovis, and the Bacille Calmette-Guérin vaccine can cause tuberculosis involving the ous tuberculosis can be acquired exogenously or endogenously and present as a multitude of differing clinical morphologies.

Although a single bacillus can cause disease, usually 50– organisms are required for development of active infection. Abstract. Cutaneous tuberculosis (CTB) is the result of a chronic infection by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, M.

ovis and occasionally by the Calmette-Guerin bacillus. The clinical manifestations are variable and depend on the interaction of several factors including the site of infection and the host's immunity.

There are several different types of cutaneous TB, and it can spread to other parts of the body. The main symptoms of cutaneous TB are usually sores or lesions in different areas, particularly the Author: Adrienne Santos-Longhurst. Cutaneous tuberculosis (TB) may present in various clinical manifestations.

Skin involvement may occur as a result of exogenous inoculation, contiguous spread from a nearby focus of infection, or by hematogenous spread from a distant focus.

Because the clinical presentation of cutaneous TB can vary widely, it is important to have a high index of suspicion in appropriate clinical settings. What is cutaneous tuberculosis.

Cutaneous tuberculosis (TB) is essentially an invasion of the skin by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the same bacteria that cause TB of the lungs (pulmonary TB).

Cutaneous TB is a relatively uncommon form of extrapulmonary TB (TB infection of other organs and tissues). Even in countries such as India and China where TB still commonly occurs, cutaneous outbreaks are.
