Primary tuberculosis (TB) of the skull is a very rare entity scantily described in literature with 0.2%–1.3% of cases. The different radiological forms of calvarial TB described are - circumscribed lesions of the sclerotic and lytic type and diffuse TB of the cranium. Treatment for skull TB includes antituberculous therapy along with appropriate surgical intervention. Here, we present a case of calvarial TB presenting as multiple osteolytic soft tissue lesions.
