This patient presented with a positive reaction to the 48-hour Mantoux skin test. The Mantoux skin test is given with a needle and syringe, used to inject testing fluid, called tuberculin, between the layers of the skin, usually on the volar surface of the forearm, as was the case here. The injection site becomes hard, or indurated, and red, in a person who is infected with tuberculosis.
