Primary Tuberculous Pyomyositis is a rare manifestation of musculoskeletal tuberculosis especially in immunocompetent individuals without a focus of tuberculosis in the body and the underlying bone disease [1]. We describe a 45 years-old incarcerated immunocompetant man with nontraumatic wound of right thumb since 9 months ago. The diagnosis of tuberculousdactylitis was based on positive acid fast bacilli using Ziehl-Neelson staining and Histopathology from involved skin.
