Any factor which modifies the state of local resistance and resultant activation of dormant tubercle bacilli, microtrauma has been proposed as a mechanism, however no case could it be established that trauma was an etiological factor. Coixtis helpful are the modern diagnostic imaging modalities like ultrasonography USGmagnetic resonance imaging MRIbone scan or immunological and molecular diagnostic tests coxxitis polymerase chain reaction PCR to diagnose TB hip at an early stage?

Edit article Share article View revision history. The characteristic radiological manifestations of tuberculosis of the hip were osteopaenia and cystic bone lesions varying in size, resembling chondroblastoma, eosinophilic granuloma and subacute pyogenic osteomyelitis. However it is at the cost of loss of movements. The differentiation from tuberculsois arthritis and idiopathic chondrolysis is difficult.

We used a spica cast for unstable hips and applied an above-knee cast with a broomstick in abduction for four to six weeks in stable hips. Immediate cementless total hip arthroplasty for the treatment of active tuberculosis.

The femoral neck is widened. 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. X-ray of the right pelvis revealed an unchanged result compared to the examination after operation without any progression of destruction and regular positioned autologous spongiosaplasty without dislocation.


Treatment was by prolonged traction and spica cast. Total hip arthroplasty for tuberculous coxarthrosis. The presence of apparent shortening or true shortening separated early arthritis and arthritis [ Table 1 ]. Schweisfurth H, Link K.

Tuberculosis of hip: A current concept review

A preliminary report tubercluosis twenty cases of hip joint tuberculosis treated by an operation devised to eliminate motion by fusing the joint.

Tuberculosis of the hip and knee treated by chemotherapy, synovectomy and debridement: Approach to septic arthritis. Some other hip conditions presenting with pain and limp are transient synovitis of the hip, Legg—Calve—Perthes disease, osteomyelitis of the upper end of the femur, injury hip, acute infective arthritis of infancy and childhood, osteoid osteoma of the neck of the femur with synovial involvement, villonodular synovitis, rheumatoid arthritis, AVN of the head of the femur, giant cell variants of upper femur, etc.

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 ‘atrophic’ hip is characterised by marked narrowing of the joint space. Tubercular arthropathy can affect any joint but frequently reported in knee, ankle, sacroiliac joint, sternaoclavicular joint, shoulder, elbow and wrist.

In case of tuberculous coxitis TBC a prior pulmonary infection causes the affection of the joint by haematogenous spread. We prefer the traction, since assisted movements of the hip joint can be started earlier. He described seven morphological types Figure I based on the destructive pattern for all ages. Cold abscess that usually forms within the joint may perforate the capsule to present around the hip joint in the femoral triangle, medial, lateral or posterior aspects of thigh, ischio rectal fossa.
