orificial tuberculosis

a rare form of cutaneous tuberculosis on mucous membranes and adjacent skin around orifices, occurring either by direct hematogenous or lymphatic extension from an internal organ or by inoculation; it forms nodules that break down to form painful, shallow ulcers with undermined bluish edges. It is usually a manifestation of advanced systemic disease in the middle-aged and elderly.
