ABSTRACT
Multifocal skeletal tuberculosis is an uncommon clinical entity. Bilaterally symmetrical lesions are even rarer. To the best of our knowledge, only one case of bilaterally symmetrical ulnar olecranon process (proximal end of ulna) tuberculosis has been reported in literature till date. We report a case of bilaterally symmetrical lytic lesions of distal end of ulna as a till-date-unreported manifestation of multifocal skeletal tuberculosis. A high index of suspicion is mandatory in tuberculosis-endemic areas to avoid delayed diagnosis in such presentations.
