Abstract

Cutaneous tuberculosis remains a rare infection. Scrofuloderma is tuberculous involvement of the skin by direct extension, usually from underlying tuberculous lymphadenitis. Pott’s disease is a dangerous form of skeletal tuberculosis. To the best of our knowledge, scrofuloderma next to the vertebral infectious sire has never been reported in the literature, hence the originality of our case who presented scrofuloderma facing the infected vertebrae by the Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
