Abstract

Lymphadenopathy is a common manifestation of tuberculosis and is most commonly seen in children and adults alike with the involvement of the cervical group of lymph nodes. Isolated inguinal tubercular lymphadenopathy has been described but is a very rare presentation of tuberculosis. We present a case report and a review of literature of isolated tubercular inguinal lymphadenopathy presenting as acute lymphadenitis, which is even rarer.
