Tuberculous osteomyelitis of the scapula is a rare clinical entity. We report a case of tuberculous osteomyelitis of the scapular spine with a breach in the posterior cortex with internal sequestrum and cloaca formation. This case also illustrates abscess formation that is extending from the posterior cortex through the deltoid muscle into the deep fascia, subcutaneous tissue and into the superficial skin with skin deformity.
