Saurabh Biswas*, Tapan Das Bairagya, Indranath Ghosh and Anirban Biswas

ABSTRACT

Scapular tuberculosis in an extremely uncommon entity. We report a case of isolated scapular tuberculosis presented with a swelling of scapular region with a discharging sinus. Radiography of scapula followed by (Fine-needle aspiration cytology) FNAC and Ziehl–Neelsen (ZN) stain and culture of the aspirated material confirmed the diagnosis. High degree of suspicion is needed to avoid a delay in diagnosis of scapular tuberculosis without involvement of lung or any other organs.

Keywords: Isolated scapular tuberculosis, scapula swelling, extra-pulmonary TB.
