Abstract

We read with interest the review article entitled “Imaging features of extrapulmonary tuberculosis” (EPTB), which rightly concludes that imaging plays an important role in the diagnosis and follow-up of EPTB (Gambhir et al., 2017). However, rather than a systematic review of all available modalities, this review appears to have focused on promoting the potential role of positron emission tomography–computed tomography (PET–CT) imaging, as the authors concluded that it may play a role in the diagnosis and follow-up of patients, especially in developing countries.
