Job syndrome (JS) is a rare primary immunodeficiency disorder characterized by the triad of raised serum immunoglobulin E levels, recurrent skin and pulmonary infections. A 6-year-old boy presented with the characteristic triad of JS and left leg swelling, which on evaluation was found to be tuberculous osteomyelitis. JS being an immunocompromised state can predispose to tuberculous infections and one has to be vigilant enough for early diagnosis and treatment to prevent deformity.
