When compared to pyogenic infections and neoplastic diseases involving the mandible, tuberculous osteomyelitis of the mandible is extremely rare. Hereby, we are reporting such a type of case in a 15-year-old male, who presented with a draining sinus over the right mandible since 3 months which later proved to be tuberculous osteomyelitis in absence of a primary focus and which responded well to anti-tubercular treatment.
