Abstract

ABQARI, S et al. Tubercular cold abscess at an unusual site mimicking a pyogenic abscess. S. Afr. j. child health [online]. 2013, vol.7, n.2, pp. 77-78. ISSN 1994-3032.

We present a case in which two tubercular abscesses presented at an unusual site with no underlying bony involvement, simulating a pyogenic abscess.
