Abstract:Primary nasopharyngeal tuberculosis (TB) is extremely rare. However, in endemic areas, isolated nasopharyngeal TB may present mimicking a malignancy. We report here a case of 31-year old male who presented with multiple lymphadenopathis in the neck. Furthermore, North Eastern part of the country has a high incidence of nasopharyngeal cancers. The diagnosis of primary nasopharyngeal TB was confirmed by histopathology of the nasopharyngeal lesion and negative finding on chest imaging.
