Abstract

We are reporting a case of breast tuberculosis (BT) that was initially misdiagnosed as a breast abscess. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) helped in diagnosing BT faster by avoiding different invasive diagnostic methods. FNAC can be used as the primary diagnostic method of choice for the diagnosis of BT.
