Abstract Anatomo-clinical data of 35 cases of maxillofacial tuberculosis are reported; the different clinical presentations of primary and secondary forms (ulcers are the most common clinical feature) and of rare form (lupus) are described and the problems concerning differential diagnosis and therapy are discussed. In the author's experience the microinvasive cytohistologic techniques (FNAB) with elective histochemical stains have been founded very usefully. The role of the stomatologist in the early diagnosis of this still-diffuse and misleading pathology is also underlined.
