Breast tuberculosis is rare and represents only 1/4000 of the surgical affections of the breast. It is the women’s prerogative, especially in the procreative period. Multiparty and breast feeding seem to be supporting factors. Clinical symptoms are various. The diagnosis is essentially based on histological examination. Indeed, the isolation of the Bacilli of Koch (BK) is possible only in 25 to 30% of all cases. Treatment is based on anti-tuberculars. Surgery has a much reduced place.
