Calvarial tuberculosis (TB) is a rare manifestation of extra-pulmonary TB, scantily reported in literature and accounting for 0.2% -1.3% of all cases of skeletal TB. The incidence of calvarial TB is rare, even in developing countries where TB is endemic. We describe a case of skull TB in a 16 year old male presenting as scalp swelling with a sinus in the occipital region. The diagnosis was established on histo-pathological examination with demonstration of Acid Fast Bacilli.
