Tuberculosis is still remains an important cause of morbidity and mortality throughout the world. Calvarial tuberculosis is a rare entity and when the primary lesion is in the calvarium without any detectable pulmonary lesion, it is even exeedingly rare. The authors present a case of a 60-year-old female patient presenting with headache and an area of painful protrusion in the left parietal scalp. Plain skull radiographs, computerized tomography(CT) scan and magnetic resonance(MR) image of the brain revealed an osteolytic lesion in the left parietal bone with an outward growth of the outer table. Chest radiograph was normal. At operation, the osteolytic lesion of the skull and the abnormal soft tissue were removed completely. Histopathological report on the surgical specimen confirmed the tuberculosis of the calvarium.
