Abstract

Tuberculosis (TB) is a major respiratory cause of morbidity and mortality globally. Miliary tuberculosis is a lethal form of disseminated tuberculosis (TB), deriving its name from the millet-seed-sized granulomas in the multiple organs. Miliary tuberculosis needs to be diagnosed early to ensure early and aggressive treatment at the earliest possible time. Histopathology remains one of the most important nad gold standard method for diagnosing tuberculosis. We conducted the present study on 213 medicolegal cases in which lung was received as the part of viscera in the department of Pathology at GGS medical college, Faridkot in last 6 years (2010–2017). Of the total, 13 cases (6.1%) were labelled as Tuberculosis and only 7 cases (3.2%) were diagnosed as miliary tuberculosis. This study highlights the utility and indispensability of histopathological autopsies for the incidental findings and diagnosis.
