Abstract

HIDDEMA, WB et al. Infantile tuberculous osteomyelitis of the proximal tibia involving the growth plate. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.3, pp. 84-87. ISSN 2309-8309.

With an ever-increasing prevalence of tuberculosis (TB) in Sub-Saharan Africa it is now more important than ever to consider tuberculosis when drawing up a list of differentials in musculoskeletal disease. We present a case of infantile tuberculous osteomyelitis of the proximal tibia involving the growth plate.

Keywords : Musculoskeletal tuberculosis; tuberculous osteomyelitis; epiphyseal tuberculosis; metaphyseal tuberculosis; extrapulmonary tuberculosis.
