Author(s): Hoan Do Dang, Trang Nguyen Khac and Nhung Nguyen Viet

Abstract: Tuberculosis osteoarthritis is an insidious disease. Up to now, due to contemptuous attitude, hip tuberculosis is easily mimic with other hip problems such as osteoarthritis, avascular necrosis or other bacterial infections. Besides, the diagnosis of hip tuberculosis requires specialized tests of the tuberculosis specialist, so the patients miss the opportunity for earlier treatment. The delay in TB treatment facilitates hip destruction leading to difficulty in hip reconstruction. We would like to report a special case of hip tuberculosis with difficult diagnosis, long-term medical treatment, and successful surgery of hip replacement.
