Tuberculous lymphadenitis can be caused either by an haematogenous spread from a pulmonary primary form or by an extrapulmonary infection due to cutaneous lesions or contact with contaminated items.

We present a 10-year-old spanish boy, who has an inguinal tuberculous lymphadenitis. Infection was secondary to a foot injury caused in a Brazilian beach. A scrofula appeared after triple therapy was instaured, needing surgical debridement with a favourable clinical evolution.

Keywords: Child. Polymerase chain reaction. Fine-needle aspiration. Tuberculous lymphadenitis . Tuberculin skin testing. Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
