Abstract

Tuberculosis (TB) remains a public health problem In Malaysia. We describe three atypical cases of serious tuberculosis in children. The potential diagnostic pitfall in these cases Is highlighted by its unusual presentation In a setting of culture-negative infection. A positive polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in each case assists in gauging the diagnosis in concordance with appropriate clinical findings.
