Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Tuberculosis (TB) of the breast is a rare condition with few cases reported outside of Asia. Its presence in juveniles is even more uncommon. Despite this, it is often easily treatable. The diagnosis of mammary TB should always be considered in an atypical presentation, and especially in those with high risk demographics. We present the case of a 16 year old girl with TB of the breast and review the literature currently available.
