We describe a case of Parotid gland tuberculosis which is a rarely encountered clinical entity. The condition is often misdiagnosed as a neoplasm or other inflammatory diseases of salivary gland and leads to unnecessary surgery. The paper highlights the importance of considering this condition in the differential diagnosis especially in the countries where tuberculosis is endemic.
