A young female patient reported to the dermatologist with a skin lesion that was diagnosed as tuberculosis verrucosa cutis (TVC) after skin biopsy. She did not continue antitubercular drugs as she was having vomiting due to pregnancy. She reported to our hospital with swelling and pain in the abdomen with 18 weeks of pregnancy. On imaging, she was diagnosed to have large iliopsoas abscess with tubercular spondylitis. She took antitubercular drugs after surgical drainage of the iliopsoas abscess. She delivered a healthy male baby. Follow-up imaging revealed resolution of the skin lesion, iliopsoas abscess, and tubercular spondylitis.
