Overview

Cases of cutaneous tuberculosis are very rare in our country, especially, the described verrucous type. The authors present a case of a Vietnamese man with extensive verrucous areas on his right sole. Diagnosis was determined by histological examination and by the Quantiferon-TB method. The patient was successfully treated with a long-term combined antituberculosis chemotherapy.

Key words:
skin tuberculosis – histology – antituberculotic drugs
