We describe an HIV-infected man with a left side cervical swelling which finally diagnosed with tuberculosis.In contrast to HIV-negative persons, nearly all tuberculous lymphadenitis (scrofula), the most kind of extrapulmonary tuberculosis, in patients with AIDS is multifocal. Constitutional symptoms such as fever, weight loss, and evidence of the lung involvement (parenchyma, nodes, or pleura) or elsewhere are seen in this setting. Positive findings on aspiration material are more frequently seen than HIV-negative population. J Microbiol Infect Dis 2018; 8(1):41-42
