We report 60 patients with tuberculosis of the hip treated by Charnley low friction arthroplasty and followed for eight to 13 years. Eight of them had active tuberculosis of the hip at the time of operation, and all were covered by relatively short courses of antituberculous drugs. Our study suggests that arthroplasty can be recommended for these patients provided that adequate chemotherapy is given both before and after operation.
