Aim: Extrapulmonary tuberculosis is observed more frequently and leads to complications with a higher rate in children compared with adults because the risk of lymphohematogen spread is higher. In this study, the clinical, laboratory, and radiologic findings and treatment outcomes were evaluated in pediatric patients who were followed up in our clinic with a diagnosis of extrapulmonary tuberculosis.
