Pulmonary tuberculosis is a significant cause of morbidity in present world especially in developing countries. Its incidence is also rising in developed countries secondary to international travel, development of drug resistance and increase in immunocompromised clinical conditions especially AIDS & diabetes mellitus. Tubercular hepatic abscess is rare due to relative hypoxic parenchymal conditions for bacillus and is usually a part of miliary tuberculosis or secondary to pulmonary or gastrointestinal tuberculosis. It appears as a solitary lesion usually in periportal location with thicker walls but without obvious edema or internal air/air-fluid level. It does not have any specific symptoms and can be easily missed or confused with amebic or pyogenic abscess. Hence, the knowledge of coexisting hepatic tubercular lesion is important not only for management but also for prognosis. In this article, we present a rare case of tubercular hepatic abscess coexisting with pulmonary tuberculosis.
