A 28-year-old woman, originally from the Philippines, presented with a painful, fluctuating swelling of the neck, preceded by peeking fever. CT-imaging showed a multiloculated abscess. A chest X-ray did not show any abnormalities. Incision and drainage were performed. Both PCR and culture revealed an infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis and the diagnosis of cervical tuberculous lymphadenitis was made.
