Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An abscess was removed from the left occipital region in a 73-year-old woman with no previous history of tuberculosis. The patient later died from aspiration bronchopneumonia. Autopsy revealed a basilar tuberculous meningitis and miliary tuberculosis in the peritracheal lymphatic glands, the liver, the spleen, and in isolated areas of the lungs. No chronic tuberculous foci were noted in any area. Including this case, only 18 instances of tuberculous abscess have been reported.
