Papulonecrotic tuberculid with inflammatory nodular lesions of the lower leg: a report of two cases


Papulonecrotic tuberculid with inflammatory nodular lesions of the lower leg: a report of two cases



Journal of Dermatology 12(4): 357-362

PMID: 3910693

Two cases of papulonecrotic tuberculid (PNT) with inflammatory nodules to the lower leg are reported. One is a 43-year-old woman with lymphadenitis tuberculosa, and the other is a 54-year-old man with penis tuberculid and epididymitis of possible tuberculous etiology. In both cases, PPD skin test was strongly positive, and antituberculous therapy was markedly effective. Although the theory of the etiology of PNT is changing due to the recent decrease in active tuberculosis, we think that one cause of so-called PNT is still tuberculosis, at least in Japan.
