Scrofuloderma is a common form of cutaneous tuberculosis, which commonly involves parotid, submandibular, subclavicular regions and the lateral neck. They are often misdiagnosed as cold abscess. Diagnosis is made by clinical examination, mantoux test, acid fast bascilli (AFB) culture, fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) or biopsy or polymerase chain reaction (PCR). We report a case of 19 year old male presenting with painful swelling on neck. He was successfully managed with antitubercular (ATT) therapy for 6 months.
