The authors report about one new case of hepatic tuberculosis in a pseudotumoral form, and emphasize the diagnostic difficulties even in a country where tuberculosis is endemic. Hepatic puncture, either with sonographic monitoring or during laparotomy, is the paraclinical examination of choice. The histological study supports the diagnosis. The medical treatment is that of any form of tuberculosis. The surgical treatment is most often indicated when a diagnosis of liver tumor is assumed.
