Tuberculosis (TB) continues to be a public health problem in both developing and industrialized countries. TB of the skeletal muscle is very rare. We present a case of the simultaneous involvement of skeletal muscles in multiple sites in an 11-year-old immune-competent female patient. All physicians should have adequate knowledge of TB and awareness of its atypical presentations to ensure the proper management of such patients.
