Abstract

Tuberculosis (TB) is a major public health problem worldwide, considered to be the main cause of death from infectious diseases, ranking alongside HIV infection. Skin involvement occurs in 1.5% of the cases, and perianal involvement is extremely rare and tends to occur among immunocompromised patients. Due to its heterogeneous clinical presentation, the diagnosis of cutaneous TB is challenging, requiring a high level of suspicion. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
