Tuberculous arthritis of the wrist

Differential diagnosis and case report

Abstract

Tuberculous arthritis usually occurs in the spine, hip, or knee. Tuberculosis is not usually considered early in the evaluation of monoarticular arthritis of a non-weight-bearing joint. We wish to present a case in which progressive destruction of the wrist occurred in a patient with minimal symptoms and no systemic complaints, thus emphasizing the insidious nature of the disease. A high index of suspicion is necessary if proper diagnosis and medical management are to be instituted.
