Tuberculosis is the leading cause of death worldwide with India leading the count (World Health Organization report 2016). We present a case of right submandibular swelling and tuberculous periapical granuloma associated with carious mandibular 2nd molar adjacent to partially impacted third molar in a 35-year-old female patient. Histopathology report of periapical specimen revealed tuberculous granulomatous pathology that correlated with the histopathology report of submandibular lymph node on the same side of face. The lesion healed uneventfully with expert medical consultation. The patient was followed up for 13 months.
