Total surgical excision of tuberculous nodes followed by chemotherapy has no extra
advantage over simple chemotherapy. Surgery involves additional hazards including those associated
with anaesthesia. Surgery is also expensive and skilled personnel to undertake surgery may not be
available in peripheral hospitals. Thus, surgery may be recommended only for ulcers sinuses with
a view to obtain a cosmetically acceptable scar or as a mopping up measure after chemotherapy for
large nodes, sinuses and abscesses.
