Tuberculosis of talus with ankle joint involvement: A case report


Author(s): Ishan Shevate, Ashwinkumar Khandge, Girish Nathani and Aanchal Mal

Abstract: Case:We present a case of a 17-years-old lady, with right ankle joint pain and swelling. The diagnosis of tuberculosis of the talus with involvement of the distal tibia and ankle joint was made with the help of X-rays, MRI, gene expert and core needle biopsy from the talus. She was treated with anti-tubercular chemotherapy and ankle immobilisation. Conclusion: Early diagnosis with radiological studies, gene expert and histopathology will help preventing further destruction of the joint surfaces due to this rare form of skeletal tuberculosis. This along with a conservative treatment with anti-tubercular drugs and protected weight bearing gives excellent functional results.
