Abstract

Struma is a tubercular skin disease. The tubercular germ settles into the skin from outside or inside the body. The germ can reach the skin from the outside through a number of means, especially in those with reduced resistance. The germ can settle into the skin through holes or scratches called ports of entry to induce struma. Inside the body, germs are able to move to the skin and subcutaneous layers through contact with blood and lymph nodes.
