A 10-years-old female presented with a 5-month history of a gradually increasing swelling of the left side of her face. A panoramic radiographic view of the mandible showed diffuse radiolucency in the ramus of the mandible. The computed tomography (CT) scan revealed destruction of the mandibular bone. The biopsy was consistent with tubercular osteomyelitis. Antitubercular therapy resulted in a marked reduction of the size of the swelling over a 18-month period.
