Tuberculosis of the Skeletal System is the latest edition of this comprehensive guide to the effects of tuberculosis on the bones and joints, with guidelines for their management.

The book is divided into twenty-six chapters across three sections. The first section covers general considerations in osteo-articular tuberculosis, including epidemiology and prevalence, pathology and pathogenesis, diagnosis and investigations, and anti-tubercular drugs.

The second section covers extra-spinal regional tuberculosis, from the hip joint to the shoulder, short tubular bones to sacroiliac joints and tendon sheaths. This section also includes a chapter on tuberculous osteomyelitis (infection of the bone marrow). Each chapter covers pathogenesis, clinical features, radiological findings, differential diagnosis, methods of treatment, surgical techniques, and relevant anatomy.

The final section focuses on tuberculosis of the spine, including imaging for the disease, differential diagnosis, operative treatment, and surgical anatomy. The increased prevalence of `superbugs' is addressed throughout this new edition, with discussion on new modalities which could potentially combat them. Enhanced by over 280 illustrations and images, this edition of Tuberculosis of the Skeletal System is an ideal update for orthopaedic surgeons.
