Involvement of small bones of hand and feet leading to tuberculous dactylitis involvement is a rare presentation of extrapulmonary tuberculosis. Even rarer is the association of tuberculous dactylitis with multifocal skeletal involvement, even in countries like ours, where tuberculosis is endemic. The authors report two cases, one of tuberculous dactylitis in a 55-year-old male and another of multifocal skeletal tuberculosis in a 4-year-old male. Both the patients were effectively treated with antitubercular drugs.
