Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 29-year-old male who demonstrated headache and scalp swelling over the left frontal region. The patient underwent a left fronto-temporal curvilinear incision, evacuation of pus, and removal of involved bone. A growth of mycobacterium tuberculosis was shown by the patient at the end of 5 weeks observation and testing allowing him to take drug anti-tubercular regime including rifampicin, ethambutol, and pyrazinamide.
