This patient presented to a clinical setting after having received a 48-hour Mantoux skin test, and had returned in order to have the test results analyzed. 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, though here, the test was performed on the left arm’s dorsal surface. The injection site becomes hard, or indurated, and red, in a person who is infected with tuberculosis.
