yes dear extra pulmonary TB can get cured permanently.proper treatment has to be completed, that is the 6 months DOTS.if incomplete, treatment has to be taken all over again since resistance develops.

Homeopath Dr. Arif. K. Kaware's  Response
Extra or Intra pulmonary TB if treated with proper dosage of medicine & till complete duration that is around 9-12 months in extra PTB will cure .Chances of recurrence are almost nil till the person gets reinfected or does not follow the prescribed line & duration of treatment.Once treated perfectly then there is hardly any chance of recurrence at least for extra PTB.
