Tuberculosis is a chronic granulomatous disease common in developing countries resulting in significant morbidity and mortality. It has varied clinical presentations, and it varies from common pulmonary tuberculosis to the rare lone like tuberculosis of the nose involving the columella like in this case. Primary nasal tuberculosis is an extremely rare clinical entity even in developing countries where tuberculosis is common. Early diagnosis and treatment will definitely reduce the morbidity of the disease. It becomes more difficult to diagnose if presenting with nonspecific symptoms which are not associated with classical nasal tuberculosis. Here, we report the diagnosis and treatment of a rare case of primary nasal tuberculosis in the columella region.
