Abstract

Osteomyelitis of zygomatic bone is rare, and tuberculous osteomyelitis is even rarer. This is the case report of a 3-year-old child presenting with a discharging sinus and swelling on the zygoma, which was initially thought to be orbital cellulitis. After further examination, she was diagnosed as having tuberculosis of zygoma and responded to anti-tubercular chemotherapy.
