Abstract Two patients with breast tuberculosis (BT) were discussed. In the presentation of each of the patients were a breast lump without pain and purulent discharge. There was associated axillary lymphadenopathy in one patient. Diagnoses were done by open biopsy and only antitubercular therapy was given to the patients. After two months of therapy, the breast lumps disappeared completely from both patients. Treatment was continued for 9 months. In breast tuberculosis, medical therapy can be used without further surgical intervention.
