Tuberculosis of the Skeletal System

by SM Tuli

The first part of the book is devoted to the general principles, and therefore, is applicable to the disease of any part of the skeletal system. The second part is organized chapter-wise to each region of the body. Each chapter more or less follows a uniform pattern presenting pathogenesis, clinical features, radiological findings, differential diagnosis, methods of treatment, role of surgical treatment, surgical technique and relevant anatomy. Each chapter in the second part stands by itself, and both the novice and the relatively inexperienced would be able to follow the management with ease. Part three of the book deals with various aspects of tuberculosis of the spine which constitutes nearly 50 percent of all cases of osteoarticular tuberculosis. This part would be of special interest to physicians, neurologists and neurosurgeons in addition to orthopedic specialists. For convenience of consultation, the bibliography has been arranged separately for spinal tuberculosis and for extra-spinal tuberculosis. Some common references may be found in either part. It is hoped that this book will be of great assistance to the trainees in Orthopedics and Infectious diseases, to the experienced surgeons working in the developing countries, to the specialists in the affluent societies (where the disease is misdiagnosed) who encounter this condition only infrequently, to the general medical practitioner on whom many patients would depend upon for follow-up treatment. Even the most experienced orthopedic surgeon would find enjoyment in perusing the illustrations and the text reflecting total change in the methodology of treatment.
