Authors: Kelly A. MacLean, Annalisa K. Becker, Silvia D. Chang, Alison C. Harris

The purpose of this pictorial review is to illustrate the various imaging findings of extrapulmonary tuberculosis. Manifestations of cardiac, central nervous system, head and neck, musculoskeletal, abdominal, genitourinary, and breast tuberculosis will be discussed. Extrapulmonary tuberculosis presents a difficult diagnostic challenge for the radiologist and requires a high index of suspicion, particularly in high-risk populations.
