Abstract: Localized tuberculid has been infrequently reported in the literature. Most of these reports are of papulonecrotic tuberculids localized to the penis, an entity designated as “penis tuberculid.” In females, such a localized genital tuberculid has not been documented till date. We report an 11-year-old girl with lichen scrofulosorum confined to the vulva, associated with cervical and inguinal tubercular lymphandenitis.
