Some of the factors causing EPTB both originated from the MTBC host or the environment as the cause. The objectives of this study are to find out the characteristics of patients with lymph node tuberculousis by looking at the socio-demographic factors, the history of contact with tuberculous patients, the history of Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) immunization and the history of previous pulmonary or pulmonary tuberculosis.
