Abstract Fifty two cases of tuberculosis of the breast encountered over a 15 year period and accounting for 3\% of all breast lesions are reported. The classic presentation was a breast lump with associated sinus in 39\%, isolated breast lump in 23\%, sinus without lump in 12\%, and tender nodularity in 23\% of the patients. Associated axillary lymphadenopathy was found in 41\%. Diagnosis was confirmed by fine needle aspiration cytology or histology in all the cases and antitubercular therapy formed the mainstay of treatment.
