Lupus vulgaris is a common type of reinfection TB. Diagnosis is made on skin biopsy with AFB stain which may or may not be positive. IF the afb stain is positive then diagnosis is confirmatory. If the afb stain is negative then a combination of clinical findings and serological tests like Mantoux test would be used by the referring clinician to start combination therapy for TB.
