Bone marrow necrosis (BMN) is a rare clinicopathologic entity caused by hypoxemia after the failure of microcirculation that frequently manifests with bone pain, fever, and peripheral cytopenia. In most reported cases of BMN resulting from extrapulmonary tuberculosis (TB), the presence of marrow granulomas, pulmonary infiltrates and/or extrapulmonary involvement are common. We report a case of an extensive BMN from miliary TB whose initial presentation was only mild anemia and multiple bone lesions.
