Papulonecrotic tuberculids associated with uveitis.
J Coll Physicians Surg Pak Jan ;18(4):236-8.
Papulonecrotic tuberculids represent an immunological expression of an internal focus of tuberculosis in an individual with a moderate or high degree of immunity. It responds to anti-tuberculosis treatment and is characterized by an eruption of necrotizing papules occurring in symmetrical crops, particularly affecting the elbows, knees, buttocks and face. A case of papulonecrotic tuberculids associated with immune mediated unilateral uveitis is reported in which all investigations were negative for tuberculosis except a strongly positive tuberculin test. There was an excellent response to anti-tuberculosis treatment. The association of immune mediated uveitis with papulonecrotic tuberculids has not been described before.
