Résumé Tuberculosis (TB) infection in healthcare personnel occurs mostly by mycobacteria inhalation and contact with infected material. Here, we report a case of primary inoculation TB in a surgeon resulting from an accidental scalpel injury. Standard anti-TB treatment produced a good result, and no relapses occurred in the 18-month follow-up period. Given the increased incidence of TB and the use of surgery to treat multidrug-resistant (MDR) strains, this report underscores the need to take special precautions during lesion excision in TB patients.
