Cutaneous tuberculosis (CTB) is a rare form of extrapulmonary TB in our region. The incidence of CTB seems to be increasing in some countries. CTB continues to be one of the most elusive and difficult diagnoses to make for dermatologists practicing in developing countries. We report the case of a five-year-old boy with an infected discharging ulcer on his face referred to our hospital in Gorgan, north of Iran. After physical, pathological and radiological examination, the diagnosis of CTB was confirmed. The condition improved after standard antitubercular regimen.
