Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A number of studies have described the osteoarticular involvement of tuberculosis, but very few cases of tubercular osteomyelitis of the foot have been reported. We describe a case of spina ventosa affecting the second metatarsal, with a review of the literature and description of the clinical manifestations, diagnostic images, and treatment of skeletal tuberculosis.
