Chilaiditi sign refers to gas in between the right dome of the diaphragm and liver, after excluding the symptoms and signs of intestinal perforation. In our case, the patient was diagnosed with pulmonary tuberculosis. His chest radiography revealed the presence of gas under the right dome of the diaphragm with no abdominal symptoms, revealing a rare entity, i.e., Chilaiditi sign.
