Tuberculous lymphadenitis occurring in the cervical region is the most common cause of extra-pulmonary tuberculosis (TB). Isolated form of tuberculous cervical lymphadenitis is rare and is described in patients without evidence of previous or ongoing TB anywhere in the body. This type yields inconsistent physical and laboratory findings, and final diagnosis requires biopsy. In this article, we report a case of tuberculous cervical lymphadenitis in a 24-year-old female patient with no evidence of TB elsewhere and diagnosis was based on histopathology.
