Tuberculosis is a highly contagious granulomatous disease which is endemic in South East Asia. Most common presentation is pulmonary tuberculosis which is spread by droplets inhalation of mycobacterium tuberculosis bacterium. Nasopharyngeal tuberculosis is a rare entity which poses a diagnostic difficulty as its presentation is greatly similar to that of nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Herein, we describe two cases of nasopharyngeal tuberculosis which mimics nasopharyngeal malignancy leading to diagnostic difficulties. © 2021, Association of Otolaryngologists of India.
