Tuberculosis (TB) is a common granulomatous disease especially in endemic regions. The rarity is further accentuated if the
pathology arises primarily from the breast. The diagnosis is arduous even upon complete triple assessment. These conditions
often give a diagnostic dilemma mimicking malignancy which ultimately requires surgical intervention. We report a series of
six cases of TB-related breast pathology with a variety of unusual presentations, our management strategies and review of the
literature.

Keywords: Extra-pulmonary, breast tuberculosis, breast lump, chronic sinuses
