Although lupus vulgaris is the most common form of cutaneous tuberculosis seen in Europe, the incidence has steadily declined and it is now rarely seen. We report a case in a 69-year-old lady who presented with a 10-year history of a slowly growing plaque on the left cheek. Skin biopsy confirmed caseating granulomata, and acid-fast bacilli were seen. She was commenced on triple antituberculous therapy with good effect.
