Lupus vulgaris is the most encountered form of cutaneous tuberculosis, and the most common
site of involvement is the head and neck. In our lupus vulgaris cases, the lesions were located
in throcal area in one case and gluteal area in the other. Ziehl-Neelsen and periodic acid-Schiff
stains did not demonstrate any acid-fast bacilli. Culture did not grow mycobacterium tuberculosis
except in case 1. PPD was strongly positive in all of the cases. Lesions of lupus vulgaris improved
after anti-tuberculotic threrapy.
