Tuberculosis of the breast is an extremely uncommon presentation of an otherwise common disease especially in developing countries. Clinical presentation is usually of a solitary, ill-defined, unilateral hard lump situated in the upper outer quadrant of the breast and may mimic breast carcinoma or breast abscess. Appropriate diagnosis precludes surgery as medical management suffices. We present two cases of this rare presentation that highlight the peculiarities of tuberculosis of the breast as well as a review of the literature.
