    Tuberculosis of the oropharynx is a rare form of extrapulmonary tuberculosis in spite of its proximity to the tracheobronchial tree. Tuberculosis of the oropharynx may be secondary to other tuberculosis, especially in the lung or primary inoculation of the inhaled tuberculous bacilli. We report 3 cases of oropharyngeal tuberculosis associated with major pharyngeal complaints, with a review of the literatures.
