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.
