Abstract :

Pulmonary tuberculosis is one of the commonest infectious disease encountered in clinical practice and more so in the developing countries. Despite of effectiveness of treatment,it is still a major cause of death. Tuberculosis can effect almost every organ of the body with maximum cases in the lungs accounting to 80%[1]. It is seen that extrapulmonary site have increased morbidity and mortality. Cardiovascular involvement is rare about 1-2%[2] and that too seen usually in the pericardium.The involvement of myocardium is even rarer.
