CASTAGNINO, Jorge P et al. Tuberculosis vulvar: Una rara localización. Rev. am. med. respir. [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.3, pp.315-317. ISSN 1852-236X.

The vulvar tuberculosis is an uncommon localization of tuberculosis, which has to be included in the differential diagnosis of painful vulvar ulcerative or exophytic lesions. This report presents a case of an HIV negative young woman with severe compromise of her health status, due to disseminated tuberculosis with multiple localizations: pulmonary, renal, genital, intestinal and peritoneal manifestations. The strain of Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolated from sputum, urine and the genital tract was susceptible to all the antituberculosis medicaments and the patient responded to treatment with first-line drugs.

Keywords : Disseminated tuberculosis; Vulvar tuberculosis; Genital ulcers.
