ABSTRACT
Thyroid tuberculosis is uncommon. Nowadays since extrapulmonary tuberculous involvement is seen more frequently (especially with HIV- induced immunosuppression), the existence of this condition should be recognized when goiters or thyroid nodules are being treated. We present a rare case of primary thyroid tuberculosis presenting as a cold abscess with discharging sinus.
