Lupus vulgaris is the commonest form of cutaneous tuberculosis. It is a chronic and slowly progressive disease. It can be transmitted either through hematogenous or lymphatic spread but most commonly through contiguous extension.There are many reports on different form of lupus vulgaris but there are only a few reports on large sized lupus vulgaris. Here, we report a case of 75-year-old man with a giant lupus vulgaris rapidly progressing in just two year's duration.
