The skin infection originating from an endogenous site may appear as scrofuloderma, acute miliary TB, tuberculous gumma, lupus vulgaris and orificial TB.
Endogenous infection is secondary to a preexisting primary focus and may result from contiguous (orificial tuberculosis, scrofuloderma), hematogenous (acute miliary tuberculosis, tuberculous gumma, and lupus vulgaris), or lymphatic dissemination (lupus vulgaris) [2,16].
Scrofuloderma is the most common form of cutaneous TB in India (50% cases) followed by lupus vulgaris in 42.86%, tuberculosis verrucosa cutis in 4.76%, and lichen scrofulosorum in 2.38% cases [5].
[7] In a study from north India Lupus vulgaris (LV) was the most frequent manifestation (55%), followed by scrofuloderma (SFD) (27%), TB verrucosa cutis (TBVC) (6%), tuberculous gumma (5%), and tuberculids (7%).
There are four major categories of cutaneous tuberculosis: (1) inoculation from an exogenous source (primary inoculation tuberculosis, tuberculosis verrucosa cutis); (2) endogenous cutaneous spread contiguously or by auto-inoculation (scrofuloderma, tuberculosis cutis oroficialis); (3) hematogenous spread to the skin (lupus vulgaris, acute miliary tuberculosis, and tuberculosis ulcer, gumma, or abscess); (4) tuberculids (erythema induratum [Bazin's disease], papulonecrotic tuberculids, and lichen scrofulosorum).
Cold abscesses and scrofuloderma in a patient of lepromatous leprosy.
Unusual or atypical mimics of HS that could be considered include Bartholin's abscess in female patients as well as, in either sex, pilonidal cyst, granuloma inguinale and lymphogranuloma venereum, Crohn's disease, scrofuloderma, and other infectious or neoplastic causes of perforating lymph nodes.
(1) Many different types of cutaneous TB exist; the most common types include scrofuloderma, TB verrucosa cutis, lupus vulgaris, and lichen scrofulosorum (Figures 9 and 10).
Scrofuloderma results from the direct extension of the infection from a deep structure (eg, lymph node, bone, joint, or epididymis) into the overlying skin [10].
The clinical and pathologic lesions are varying from scrofuloderma to lupus vulgaris (LV) in CT,6 but the most common form of CT is LV.5 The most significant problem for the diagnosis of CT is the low positive cultures results.5 Here, we describe a young girl with LV involving the left face and arm, and she may be the youngest case with the diagnosis of CT in the literature.
He responded to a second course of therapy, but at the age of 4 years presented with a discharging sinus over the right arm and right axillary scrofuloderma. Histological analysis of the skin biopsy confirmed the presence of intracellular acid-fast bacilli, although mycobacterial cultures were negative.
