A more accurate classification of CTB includes inoculation tuberculosis, tuberculosis from an endogenous source and haematogenous tuberculosis [1]. We report a 63-year-old male patient who was diagnosed with primary inoculation tuberculosis on the basis of clinical appearance and histopathological examination [2]. Our data provide a deeper insight into this rare route of infection of tuberculosis [3]. About one fifth of diagnosed new cases of tuberculosis have an extrapulmonary Lesion, of which about one-tenth involve the musculoskeletal system [4]. Skin lesions had developed at the acupuncture sites 1 or 2 weeks after a session of acupuncture, which was intended to relieve back Pain [5].

Tuberculosis was identified by mycobacterial culture and polymerase chain reaction [6]. We sought to describe the clinical manifestations, laboratory features, and antituberculous therapy in cases of cutaneous tuberculosis [7]. Twenty cases of cutaneous tuberculosis were observed in this study [8]. All of the patients responded favourably to antituberculous treatment [9]. Histology and cultures revealed infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis [10].

We report a case of Chronic Ulcer on the Vulva of four months duration, which, on detailed investigation, turned out to be a case of primary inoculation tuberculosis [11]. Conversion of a previously negative skin test permitted the diagnosis of primary inoculation tuberculosis of the skin [12].
