Caverno-chest wall sinus without pleural spillage, a subentity of lung hernia, is a rare presentation of pulmonary tuberculosis resulting from spontaneous communication of the lung parenchymal cavity with the extraparenchymal compartment. This presentation in a completely healthy, young, asymptomatic individual for the first time is unusual. This rare presentation of tuberculosis is being highlighted in this case report.
