Abstract :

Tuberculosis of the medial end of the clavicle is very rare osteomyelitis, secondary to extrapulmonary skeletal Tuberculosis. We report a rare presentation of clavicular Tuberculosis as a swelling in the medial end of the clavicle. Tumours are much more frequent than infections in this bone, and thus it is challenging to conclude before surgical excision. With the worldwide resurgence of Tuberculosis, clinicians should maintain a high index of suspicion as more infection at unusual sites is being reported.
