Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Tuberculosis of the talus is a rare condition, and the diagnosis can be difficult to make because of inconclusive laboratory and ancillary testing. In such cases, accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment may require the use of a transmalleolar osteotomy to gain access to the involved portion of the talar body. In the case described in this article, a transmalleolar approach was used to gain access to a lytic lesion of the talar body so as to obtain microbiological and histopathological specimens for diagnostic purposes, and to thoroughly debride the lesion. After 6 years of postsurgical follow-up, the patient was leading a normal life with a full range of ankle and subtalar motion. The rarity of the diagnosis, and the use of the transmalleolar approach to a lytic and likely infected lesion in the body of the talus, makes this case worthy of public discussion.
