Baruah, B.; Goyal, A.; Shunyu, N.B.; Lynrah, Z.A. & Raphael, V.


During the past two decades, tuberculosis - both pulmonary and extrapulmonary - has re-emerged as a major health problem worldwide. Nasal tuberculosis - either primary or secondary to pulmonary tuberculosis or facial lupus - is rare, but it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of nasal granulomas. We describe a case of tuberculosis in an adult male who presented with palatal perforation with vanishing uvula and arch deformity of the palate. The diagnosis was based on histopathology and patient′s successful response to antituberculous drug treatment.

Palate, tuberculosis, uvula
