Abstract

Tuberculosis (TB) continues to be a major health problem worldwide, despite considerable advances in the diagnosis and treatment of the disease [1]. This disease presents with diverse clinical symptoms in the form of pulmonary TB and extra-pulmonary TB. Extra-pulmonary TB accounts for almost 15% of all cases. Among the extra-pulmonary forms, splenic TB is an unusual entity. This form of TB is normally
seen as a part of miliary TB. In our case study, a patient presented with a rare form of splenic TB and managed successfully. Splenic TB is undetectable as a primary site in the body and is a rare variant of extra-pulmonary TB.
