We reported a case of 10-year-old boy with ulcers in the cervical and axillary region. The lesion began as papules, which gradually developed into nodules and pustules. Chronic cough was also found, however chest x ray was normal and sputum direct smear for acid fast bacil was negative. Histopathologic finding of tissue biopsy revealed epidermal necrosis in the central part surrounded by granulomatous tissue forming an abscess and histiocyte infiltrates, confirming the diagnosis of scrofuloderma. CT Scan of neck showed multiple enlarged lymph nodes, and FNAB result was suggestive for tuberculous lymphadenitis. Patient was ...

Conclusion: Tuberculosis remains most common cause of bronchiectasis at our centre (87.5%). However other important causes should always be ruled out. Mycobacteria Culture and CBNAAT tests both must be performed to rule out reactivation of tuberculosis and NTM detection.
