Tuberculosis of soft tissues is rare. We report an exceptional case of tuberculosis in a 42-year-old female. The focus of infection was situated in the anterior muscle compartment of the right thigh. Outcome was good after surgery and a 9-month antituberculosis treatment, with no general or functional sequelae.
