Tuberculosis verrucosa cutis (TBVC) is a common paucibacillary form of cutaneous tuberculosis caused by exogenous reinfection in previously sensitized individuals. The typical morphology is usually observed as a single verrucous plaque with inflammatory borders mostly on the hands, knees, ankle, and buttocks; however, several atypical morphologies of the lesions have also been described. TBVC occurring in sporotrichoid pattern is relatively rare. We report a case of a rare sporotrichoid presentation of TBVC in a 38-year-old male patient in the absence of any primary tuberculous focus.
