Abstract

Cervical tubercular lymphadenopathy(CTL) is a common extra-Pulmonary manifestation of tuberculosis. CTL can masquerade many other diseases. A high index of suspicion must be maintained in any cases presenting with neck swelling especially in TB endemic region like Nepal. Here we present a varied presentation of CTL at a primary care level community hospital.
