Abstract

Pharyngeal tuberculosis is an uncommon condition. We report here an analysis of 10 cases collected from 1990 to 1996. The patients were aged between 16 and 75 years, with an equal sex distribution. Topographically there were 7 nasopharyngeal cases and 3 tonsillar cases, the presenting features being those of a chronic pharyngeal disorder, sometimes with cervical adenopathy. Macroscopically, the main features were those of misleading pseudo-tumours. The diagnosis rests on the histology. Anti-tuberculous medical treatment is usually effective.
