The nasopharyngeal tuberculosis is a rare chronic infection representing less than 1% of the forms of this disease. Less than one hundred cases have been reported since 1936. It is most often associated with pseudo-tumoral forms associated with cervical lymphadenopathy and raises problems of differential diagnosis with nasopharyngeal tumors and only the biopsy allows slicing. Its prognosis is good under anti-bacillary treatment. We report the case of 3 patients who have nasopharyngeal tuberculosis whose clinical picture is made of cervical lymphadenopathy with nasal obstruction, and whose diagnosis is made by a nasal endoscopy with biopsy of the nasopharyngeal.
