Tenosynovitis tuberculosis of the hand is a rare form of extra-pulmonary localization. we report an observation of localization of tuberculosis at the level of the clean sheath of the 5th finger of the hand.We emphasize the importance of the biopsy followed by an anatomopathological examination which remains the basis of the diagnosis.An early diagnosis allows a well-defined medical treatment presenting complications.
