TI  - Asymptomatic congenital tuberculosis: A case report.
PG  - e7562
LID - 10.1097/MD.0000000000007562 [doi]
AB  - RATIONALE: Congenital tuberculosis (TB) is described as a rare, but severe
      disease. In contrast to the cases with severe symptoms reported so far, we
      describe a child with asymptomatic congenital TB. PATIENT CONCERNS: An 8-week-old
      girl was investigated because of newly diagnosed TB in her mother, which
      complained about cough since 21 weeks gestation. Lung biopsy tissue specimens of 
      the mother revealed necrotizing granuloma with a single acid-fast bacillus (AFB) 
      and Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) was detected by polymerase chain reaction.
      Bronchoalveolar lavage was negative for AFB smear and culture, arguing against
      postnatal transmission of MTB. TB contact investigations were negative. The
      child, at the age of 8 weeks at first assessment, was in an excellent general
      condition and diagnosed with congenital TB by culture-positive lung TB and
      exclusion of postnatal transmission. DIAGNOSES: The child fulfilled Cantwell
      criteria to diagnose congenital TB. INTERVENTIONS: Ambulatory anti-tuberculosis
      treatment was initiated for 6 months. OUTCOMES: The 18 months follow-up was
      uneventful. LESSONS: This case of asymptomatic congenital TB in a young child
      illustrates the diagnostic difficulties in congenital TB and raises the question 
      whether congenital TB is underestimated.
