Diagnosing tuberculosis in the new era remains a challenge. Atypical presentation of tuberculosis is not very uncommon. The musculoskeletal system remains one of the common sites for extrapulmonary tuberculosis, but pubic ramus involvement is very rare. No case is reported in literature where tuberculosis was masked by Pseudomonas infection. A high index of suspicion is necessary to correctly and timely diagnose tuberculosis. Here, we present the case of a health-care worker who was misdiagnosed as Pseudomonas. The patient had an excellent outcome following a complete course of antituberculous chemotherapy for tuberculosis.
