Abstract

Cutaneous tuberculosis of the orofacial region is a rare condition and when it occurs, can cause confusion regarding the true nature of the lesion. This is compounded by the fact that neither mantoux test nor histopathology is confirmatory. In this report we discuss a case of lupus vulgaris with emphasis on the diagnostic approach to be followed by dental practitioners who come across a similar case.
