Mycobacterial tuberculous tenosynovitis of the hand is a rare manifestation of extrapulmonary tuberculosis, while mycobacterial tuberculous tenosynovitis of the extensor tendon sheath is extremely rare. We report a case of tuberculous tenosynovitis of the extensor tendon of the finger, occurring in a man receiving immunosuppression following a liver transplantation. Symptoms improved clinically after conservative treatment with anti-tuberculous drugs.
