Extrapulmonary tuberculosis (EPT) can affect all organs. Its diagnosis is often challenging, especially when the lung is not involved. Some EPT locations, such as when the central nervous system is involved, are a medical emergency, and some have implications for treatment options and length. This review describes clinical features of EPT, diagnostic tests and treatment regimens.
