Congenital tuberculosis is exceedingly rare. A review of the literature revealed only 147 cases. Two cases presented in this report were seen in a teaching hospital in a six year period. Both the infants were seen before six weeks of age. Both presented with prolonged pyrexia. Mothers were known to have pulmonary tuberculosis in both the instances. Tuberculin tests were positive. Radiographic evidence of tuberculosis was present in one case only while histological evidence was present in the other. Both responded to the therapy well. The need for early diagnosis in successful salvaging these infants is emphasized.
