MARTINS JUNIOR, Elson Vidal et al. Disseminated cutaneous tuberculosis with scrofuloderma associated to costal arch tuberculosis. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2007, vol.82, n.4, pp.343-347. ISSN 1806-4841.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962007000400007.

The authors describe a case of disseminated cutaneous tuberculosis with scrofuloderma associated to tuberculosis in the costal arch. A 46-year-old, woman, was hospitalized with nodules measuring 1 to 6 cm in the cervical region, back, armpit and buttocks, which developed purulent discharge with elimination of caseous secretion, associated to episodes of daily evening fever, night sweats and weight loss of 10Kg over the previous three months. Thorax radiography showed an osteolytic lesion in the third left rib. Culture of the nodule secretion was positive for Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Treatment for tuberculosis resulted in pronounced clinical improvement and resolution of the patient's cutaneous lesions.
