“…The high sensitivity and speed of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for the detection of infectious agents has prompted investigators to use this technique for the detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis . 6–8 In the present study, we have used PCR to confirm the presence of M. tuberculosis in the lesions of patients suspected of having cutaneous tuberculosis. Specimens from patients with leprosy and other unrelated disorders were also tested to ascertain the specificity of the assay.…”

“…KishanChand et al [ 9 ] stated the following: Histopathological examination of the involved tissue should be the essential initial investigation. Tuberculosis infection can be confirmed by Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) [ 13 ]. Intravenous urography should be undertaken to exclude urinary tract Tb.…”

“…Still, some authors have proposed keeping the name "EIB" for those cases in which a causative relationship with TB is demonstrated and refer to the remainder of cases as nodular vasculitis. Recently, the detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis -specific DNA using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) methods was demonstrated in EIB7,8. Currently, however, there seems to be a consensus considering EIB and nodular vasculitis as the same entity9.…”
