Abstract The sternum and testis are infrequent localisations for extra pulmonary tuberculosis. The initial response to a co-existing lesion, as this case depicted is, to implicate a malignant process of some sort. A high index of suspicion is needed to overcome this diagnostic riddle. Biopsy of the lesion and bacteriological work-up are essential ingredients of management.
