Calvarial tuberculosis is a very rare entity scantily described in literature. It forms 0.2-1.3% of the bone tuberculosis. This is a rare entity even in the endemic areas. Primary calvarial tuberculosis with no evidence of tuberculosis is still rarer of these cases. We describe six cases of calvarial tuberculosis. The relevant clinicoradiological features and management are discussed. A high index of suspicion and awareness of this condition may lead to early diagnosis.
