Hepatic tuberculoma is an uncommon form of extrapulmonary tuberculosis (TB). It is usually a part of disseminated disease such as miliary TB. Localized TB of the liver in the form of macronodular tuberculoma or an abscess is rare.[1] Clinicians should be aware of the possibility of tuberculous infection in all patients who have nonresolving liver abscesses, particularly in regions with high prevalence. Presented here is a case of an immunocompetent patient with tuberculoma of the liver, which was diagnosed by percutaneous ultrasonography-guided liver biopsy.
