Hepatic tuberculosis is a rare clinical entity and a frequently forgotten cause of pyrexia of unknown origin. Most of the patients remain asymptomatic with hepatic involvement. Since tuberculosis remains a potentially curable disease, an awareness of its manifestations is very essential. We are reporting a 26 year old male who presented with fever of unknown origin. Further investigations showed hepatic tuberculosis as a cause of pyrexia of unknown origin. Patient responded well to antituberculos treatment. The presence of isolated tubercular foci in the liver without any evidence of tuberculosis in lung or other extra-pulmonary site prompted us to report this case.
