Disseminated tuberculosis (DTB) often presents with protean clinical manifestations that often leads to potential diagnostic dilemmas. The nonspecific features may include pyrexia of unknown origin, hepatosplenomegaly, lymphadenopathy, meningitis, and a variety of hematological abnormalities, namely anemia, pancytopenia, and leukemoid reaction. Tuberculosis is one of the nonhematopoietic diseases that has been reported in conjunction with myelofibrosis. We, hereby, report a case of DTB with massive splenomegaly, severe pancytopenia, and marrow fibrosis.
