A case of tuberculosis of the oesophagus is reported. The patient complaining of dysphagia had oesophagoscopic examination which showed a proliferative type of growth occluding almost whole of the lumen of the lower end of the oesophagus, resembling oesophageal malignancy. Biopsy done twice failed to reveal any evidence of malignancy. Gastrostomy revealed tubercles on the oesophageal wall. Histopathology clinched the diagnosis of tuberculosis.
