FANLO, P.  y  TIBERIO, G.. Extrapulmonary tuberculosis. Anales Sis San Navarra [online]. 2007, vol.30, suppl.2, pp.143-162. ISSN 1137-6627.

In spite of the lung being the target organ par excellence of tuberculosis, any other organ and system can be affected. In this article we review the forms of extrapulmonary tuberculosis, with the exception of the pleural form that requires the use of good diagnostic skills. From the dreaded tuberculous meningitis, by way of the insidious affectation of the spondylodiscitis, the so-called ganglionary affectation , the genitourinary affectation, pericarditis, and ending with less frequent forms such as ocular and cutaneous tuberculosis. In each section we will indicate what is most characteristic with the aim of providing a diagnostic and therapeutic orientation.
