Abstract.

Primary breast tuberculosis is rare. We report a case of bilateral primary breast tuberculosis. The patient received incisional drainage and debridement of both breasts. Histopathology of the breast tissues revealed chronic granulomatous inflammation and positive acid-fast stain. The patient received antitubercular therapy for 18 months, and she achieved complete resolution.
