Abstract

Tuberculosis is caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. While the disease mainly affects the lungs, there are cases of other affected organs with atypical manifestations. In this report, we present a case of tuberculosis in the oral cavity, with a rare manifestation of the disease. Since most extra pulmonary lesions represent secondary infections with the primary focus of tuberculosis being the lungs, awareness of unusual clinical manifestations and appropriate, accurate, and early diagnosis are important for treatment and control of the disease.
