Tuberculosis of the bones and joints ; Springer-Verlag, Berlin Heidelberg. Wilkinson and Marmor popularised radical synovectomy, debridement, capsulotomy and curettage. Many present in the advanced stage of the disease due to delayed diagnosis. An evaluation of efficacy and precision.

Tuberculosis of hip: A current concept review

J Child Orthop ; 4: J Bone Joint Surg ; 8: With modern diagnostic facilities, the patients are being diagnosed early along with very effective antitubercular drugs, hence the number of patients with advanced radiological changes are going down. Furthermore the preoperative response to oral antituberculotic therapy as well as persistent histological evidence of active disease are important aspects for choosing the suitable surgical technique for operative treatment.

Thereafter by confirming TBC and open lung tuberculosis, the patient was treated with combination of oral Isoniazid, Rifampicin, Ethambutol and Pyrazinamid. Thirty-six children were retrospectively reviewed between and at a local hospital. X-ray left hip anteroposterior view showing a old healed tubercular arthritis hip with dislocation.

In addition to traction and chemotherapy, analgesics supplementation is necessary till spasm of tg muscles is relieved. This consisted tg isoniazide, rifampicin, pyrazinamide and pyridoxine.

MRI may show synovial effusion, osseous edema and areas of bone destruction. Changes in the articular surfaces in tuberculosis arthritis. If undertaken in association with extensive debridement and appropriate anti-TB treatment, it provides symptomatic relief and functional improvement It is reasonable to believe that THA placed in an active disease with structurally weak bone would fail biomechanically more often, however, the follow of THR in such cases hardly show recurrence of disease or loosening of implant.


The constitutional symptoms may or may not be present in all the cases. Results Pain around the hip region and a limp were the main coxiris features in all children.

Tuberculous Coxitis: Diagnostic Problems and Varieties of Treatment: A Case Report

Before the completion of the operative procedure, ensure that adequate range has been achieved by passive movements while under anesthesia. Abstract Although the prevalence of tuberculosis reduces, it still belongs to the most important infectious diseases worldwide even in industrial countries.

Gruca A, Warsaw P. After a course of antibiotic treatment she underwent reconstructive surgery which consecutively improved range of motion. J Bone Joint Surg Am. Log in Sign up.

In the coxiris type, the head dislocates posteriorly, or subluxes due to laxity of ligaments and capsular distension. Radiol Clin N Am ; In the present time, diagnostic modalities have improved cixitis the days when diagnosis was based essentially on clinicoradiological presentation alone. Arthroplasty using the Charnley prosthesis in old tuberculosis of the hip. The histological result was suspicious for tuberculosis with marked granulomatous lymphadenitis and caseous degenerated confluent necrosis, but tuberculin test and sputum sample examinations by microscopy and culture medium were negative.

Tuli 1 suggested modification in this classification [ Cozitis 2 ]. In our case the patient underwent reconstructive surgery by extirpation of the granuloma in the acetabulum and augmentation with autologous spongiosaplasty after oral antituberculotic treatment.

Complete course of chemotherapy is the most important therapeutic approach.

Another advantage with traction is that it keeps the joint surfaces apart; hence with an early start of mobilization exercises of the hip, functional range of movements can be achieved.

Of his 41 patients of the advance arthritis, 40 had appreciable range of movements.


[Coxitis due to multidrug resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis in a HIV negative patient].

The ROM of the hip joint in spite of the radiological findings with progressive sclerosis in the acetabulum and joint space narrowing Fig. Conservative traction regimen Sandhu et al.

There were 21 boys and 15 girls. Furthermore a second aspiration of the right hip joint confirmed M. An argument against Girdlestone resection or arthrodesis was the improvement of ROM as well as the reduction of pain supported by a regular performed physiotherapy during the period before operative intervention.

The ‘atrophic’ hip is characterised by marked narrowing of the joint space. Babhulkar and Pande 9 introduced a classification, based on above clinicoradiological presentations into stage of synovitis, early arthritis, stage of arthritis and stage of advanced arthritis. The modern diagnostic facilities like ultrasonography USG or magnetic resonance imaging of the hip joint, USG guided aspiration of synovial fluid and obtaining the material for polymerase chain reaction and tissue diagnosis must be utilized.

However, it is not adequate in an unstable hip. Articular cartilage was denuded at surgical exploration.

Irregular and hazy joint margins with diminished joint space on left side. By the time definite radiological changes appear on plain X-ray, the disease has moderately advanced. The different lines of management of this complex problem could be as follows.

One child presented with a pathological fracture of the proximal femur. Cpxitis studies of the incidence of pulmonary and extrapulmonary tuberculosis. Long-term evaluation of a new acetabuloplasty. Pure osseous lesions with an intact joint outline have a good outcome.
