Abstract

A case of an abscess of the neck caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis is reported. A 23-yearold female visited Ako City Hospital complaining of a high fever and swelling of the left side of her neck. A CT scan revealed multiple lymph node swelling and an abscess formation on her neck. <i>Mycobacterium tuberculosis</i> was diagnosed by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method of the abscess obtained by fine-needle aspiration (FNA). After the diagnosis, anti-mycobacterial therapy was started, and FNA was performed three times to prevent rupture. The indication of surgical therapy is discussed.
