Abstract

We report a case of reactivation tuberculosis with the additional complication of a large broncho-subcutaneous fistula in a post-tuberculous lobectomy fibrothorax. The Spiral CT findings of both pathologies are described and the importance of multiplanar reconstruction for establishing the correct diagnosis and planning subsequent surgical therapy is emphasised.
