In cutaneous tuberculosis, the skin is chronically inflamed. A bacterium is responsible for the infection, which can also trigger pulmonary tuberculosis. Symptoms include nodular thickening of the skin, ulcers, and swollen lymph nodes. The most common form of cutaneous tuberculosis is lupus vulgaris. This is a very severe, chronic and progressively worsening type of skin tuberculosis. The inflammation primarily affects the head, neck and cheeks of the face.
