We report a case of tuberculosis verrucosa cutis (TBVC) on the foot that had been present for more than 6 years in a 42-year-old man. He had a positive Mantoux test and a normal chest radiograph. This case demonstrates the indolent nature of the disease. The diagnosis of TBVC should be based on history and evolution of the disease, cardinal morphological features and histopathological characteristics. Adequate therapeutic response may also helpful.
