Congenital tuberculosis (CTB) is a rare entity with 300 cases reported so far and only 12 cases from India. We report an unusual case of multidrug resistant CTB leading to bronchopulmonary dysplasia in the preterm neonate. Baby presented with miliary shadows on chest X-ray with proven diagnosis on bronchopulmonary lavage. This case led to a diagnosis of endometrial tuberculosis in the mother, who looked apparently well.
