Bone scan appearance is presented in some reports, as multiple abnormal accumulations of tracer. This report describes an unusual presentation of multifocal skeletal tuberculosis.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Tuberculosis of the calvaria is a rare entity, and only anecdotal reports describing its imaging features have been previously published in the literature. We report the role of conventional radiography and CT findings on in the evaluation of calvarial tuberculosis in 42 cases.. METHODS: Forty-two cases of pathologically verified calvarial tuberculosis were analyzed retrospectively by using conventional radiography and CT imaging. The patients included 28 male and 14 female subjects ranging in age from 5 to 48 years (mean age, 16 years). Surgery was performed in 28 patients, and the remaining 14 patients underwent fine needle aspiration cytology. The histologic findings were consistent with the diagnosis of tuberculosis. At follow-up after 2 years, all patients had completely recovered.. RESULTS: The male-to-female ratio was 2:1 (28 male and 14 female). The maximum number of patients affected by calvarial tuberculosis ranged in age from 11 to 20 years (61.2%). The average ...

Forty cases of fracture shaft femur were treated by early skeletal traction followed by the application of functional thigh brace made of low density polyethylene and moulded individually for each patient. The patients were allowed to walk gradually with the help of crutches. For proximal fractures, the classical brace was modified by adding a pelvic band and hip hinge in 20 degrees valgus to avoid varus angulation. Average period of skeletal traction was 34 days and union occurred on an average at 15.2 weeks. None of the patients had less than 90 degrees of knee movements at the end of treatment and the overall results were good in 82 percent cases. The polyethylene functional brace was light in weight, adjustable (can be loosened or tightened), washable, removable for personal hygiene and was economical as well ...

The spine is the most common site of skeletal tuberculosis (1% of TB patients and , 25% of patients with skeletal TB). It is more predominant among males. The risk factors for the disease include older debilitated patients, IV drug abusers (pseudomonas) and immune-compromised patients including those suffering from AIDS. The concomitant risk of having pulmonary lesion is about 50% which changes the mortality rate by up to 30%. The disease is mostly blood-borne, which settles in the anterior part of the vertebral body. The lower thoracic spines are the most commonly affected. The development of the disease involves bone destruction, sequestrum formation, large abscess and pus. The intervertebral discs are preserved until late in the disease. An anterior vertebral body collapse causes sharp kyphosis. The progression of kyphosis leads to an increased risk of cord compression, a condition called Potts paraplegia. Clinically, the disease has an insidious course, with fever, night sweats, anorexia, ...
Any investigator involved in the study of antituberculous chemotherapy must grapple with 2 phenomena unique to the pathogenesis and treatment of tuberculosis. The first is a propensity for the initial infection to evolve under the pressure of host immunity into a paucibacillary latent state which may reactivate into clinical disease at a later point in time.. The second is a capacity for persistence of a small bacillary population in a state of unresponsiveness to antimicrobials to which they are genotypically susceptible. The mechanisms by which the bacteria transition to and survive in the latent and persistent states are unknown. Therefore, the identification of bacterial factors involved in both states would be extremely beneficial for both the preventive and the curative therapy of tuberculosis. The genomics revolution has provided the tools and techniques necessary to begin to identify those bacterial factors regulating the adaptive response. My collaboration with Dr. William Bishai, a ...

Musculoskeletal tuberculosis (TB) accounts for approximately 10% of all extrapulmonary TB cases in the United States and is the third most common type of extrapulmonary TB after pleural and lymphatic disease. Vertebral involvement (tuberculous spondylitis, or Potts disease) is the most common type of skeletal TB, accounting for about half of all cases of musculoskeletal TB. The presentation of musculoskeletal TB may be insidious over a long period and the diagnosis may be elusive and delayed, as TB may not be the initial consideration in the differential diagnosis. The diagnosis is often confused with malignancy. Concomitant pulmonary involvement may not be present, thus confusing the diagnosis even further.
Background: There are limited data detailing the appropriate management of nondisposable autologous osteoarticular fragments that have been contaminated by the operating room floor. The goal of the present study was to perform a comprehensive, three-phase investigation to establish an appropriate intraoperative algorithm for the management of the acutely contaminated, but nondisposable, autologous osteoarticular bone fragment. Methods: Phase I of the study was performed to quantify the rate of contamination and microbial profile of human osteoarticular fragments that were dropped onto the operating room floor (n = 162). Phase II was performed to assess the feasibility and optimal means of decontaminating 340 similar fragments that underwent controlled contamination with bacteria that were identified in Phase I; decontamination was performed with use of cleansing agents that are routinely available in an operating room. Phase Ill was performed to assess the effect of each decontamination process ...

A 52 year old man who had been receiving haemodialysis for 13 years, with a history of renal tuberculosis, right ischial tuberculous osteomyelitis, and dialysis arthropathy, developed a soft tissue tumour in his left buttock. Histological analysis, immunohistological staining, and electron microscopic examination of the surgically removed tumour showed massive deposits of beta 2-microglobulin (beta 2-M) amyloid. This case shows the expanding clinical spectrum of this type of amyloidosis, and it is suggested that amyloid infiltration should be considered in the differential diagnosis of gluteal tumours in these patients.. ...
Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The bacteria usually attack the lungs, but TB bacteria can attack any part of the body such as the kidney, spine, and brain. Tuberculous arthritis caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis also has been described. The joints most frequently involved are the spine, hips, knees, wrists, and ankles. Valvular endocarditis due to Mycobacterium tuberculosis also has been reported. If not treated properly, TB disease can be fatal. VetPCR TBC Detection Kit is the direct detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis on the basis of a genetic database, so it can diagnose very fast and accurately. It can amplify only specific gene using the PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) method, and take only 3 hours for detection. Therefore, it is a very fast, accurate and reliable technique.

Clinical patterns of skeletal TB include spondylitis, osteomyelitis, peripheral joint infection, and soft tissue abscess. Spine is the most common site skeletal involvement accounting for 50-60 % of cases [4, 6]. Joint involvement is second in frequency and may be secondary to direct invasion from an adjacent focus of TB osteomyelitis or even may result from haematogenous dissemination. The disease is typically monoarticular (90%) and primarily involves the large weight-bearing joints such as hip and knee [1]. Any joint can be affected, however ankle and wrist involvement is uncommon. Osteoarticular TB of wrist accounts for , 1% [7-9]. In Garridos study, which was consisted of 52 patients, monoarticular involvement was seen in 47 patients, whereas 2 joint involvements were seen in 5 patients [2]. TB arthritis is a chronic process, slowly progressive and often without systemic symptoms. Delay in diagnosis and history of trauma is common [10]. TB arthritis is diagnosed with histopathological ...

Caring for a child with an osteoarticular infection or considering the possibility of an osteoarticular infection in a child is one of the most common clinical dilemmas encountered by clinicians caring for children. In such a scenario, one most often considers infection with frequently encountered pathogens such as Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus pneumoniae or Kingella kingae. A large variety of opportunistic osteoarticular pathogens may be found in the immunosuppressed patient or the postoperative or post-trauma patient, due to breaches in the immune system and nosocomial or post-traumatic exposure to multiple organisms. However, an enlarging spectrum of less commonly encountered bacterial pathogens is also increasingly appreciated in community-acquired osteoarticular infections in otherwise healthy children, particularly in this era of pneumococcal and Haemophilus influenzae serotype B immunization. Given the limitations of culture-based detection methods in ...

Background.Almost one-fifth of United States tuberculosis cases are extrapulmonary; unexplained slower annual case count decreases have occurred in extrapulmonary tuberculosis (EPTB), compared with annual case count decreases in pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) cases. We describe the epidemiology of EPTB by means of US national tuberculosis surveillance data.. Methods.US tuberculosis cases reported from 1993 to 2006 were classified as either EPTB or PTB. EPTB encompassed lymphatic, pleural, bone and/or joint, genitourinary, meningeal, peritoneal, and unclassified EPTB cases. We excluded cases with concurrent extrapulmonary-pulmonary tuberculosis and cases of disseminated (miliary) tuberculosis. Demographic characteristics, drug susceptibility test results, and risk factors, including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) status, were compared for EPTB and PTB cases.. Results.Among 253,299 cases, 73.6% were PTB and 18.7% were EPTB, including lymphatic (40.4%), pleural (19.8%), bone and/or joint (11.3%), ...
This natural history study seeks to determine some of the mycobacterial and host factors involved in the failure of antituberculous chemotherapy, disease recurrence, and the development of multidrug resistance by M. tuberculosis. Despite optimal treatment with directly-observed short-course therapy (DOTS), about 5-10% of compliant patients with cured tuberculosis relapse, usually within a year after completion of therapy. In Korea, where DOTS is not practiced, the relapse rate has been reported to be 15 to 20 %. In individual patients, failure to eradicate disease contributes directly to the development of drug-resistance and to low overall cure rates. While factors such as patient drug compliance and HIV status have been extensively studied in relation to rates of relapse; host genetic factors and the specific relevance of the infecting mycobacterial strain have not yet been investigated in detail. Identification of patient characteristics and specific strains of M. tuberculosis that are ...

Transfer factor was administered to a patient with progressive primary tuberculosis who failed to respond to antituberculous therapy and in whom a defect in cellular immunity to tuberculous infection was shown by in-vivo and in-vitro studies of cell-mediated immunity. The administration of transfer factor to this patient resulted in the development of immunologic reactivity, which was accompanied by dramatic improvement of her clinical condition. This observation strongly suggests that transfer factor in conjunction with antituberculous therapy was instrumental in the resolution of the patients infection. ...

In a global perspective, the effect of TB on the health and economy of the world is staggering. It has been estimated that 2 to 3 billion people worldwide have active TB. This represents one-third of the worlds population. In 2014, 9.6 million people around the world became sick with tuberculosis, and 1.5 million died of TB-related illnesses. The return of TB, teamed with the spread of HIV/AIDS and the prevalence of MDR-TB, has created a serious, and potentially deadly, healthcare problem. All healthcare providers must be aware of the dangers for patients, family, and self. Only meticulous attention to methods of prevention and treatment can help control this killer disease. This course will review the incidence, etiology, methods of transmission, types of tuberculosis, signs and symptoms, methods of diagnosis, prophylaxis, treatment, and management of adult and pediatric patients with pulmonary and extrapulmonary tuberculosis.

The model allows the researchers to further investigate what happens in a human body when TB develops, with a long term aim of identifying new antibiotic treatments and vaccines. The research was funded by the Medical Research Council and is published in mBio and eLife.. Professor Paul Elkington, who leads the Southampton TB research group, commented: "We believe this is a really exciting development for the field of tuberculosis research. The 3D sphere can be created with a collagen matrix so it is more like a human lung.. This produces an environment which allows particular antibiotics that are important in treating patients to kill the infection, which they cannot do in other 2D model systems. This system will help us speed up the process of finding treatments and vaccines for human tuberculosis, an infection that kills 1.8 million people per year.". Additionally the 3D spheres are able to prolong experiments for up to three weeks, more than four times longer than standard 2D model systems. ...

Background: Extrapulmonary tuberculosis appears to be increasing in England and Wales. The trends in extrapulmonary tuberculosis and factors associated with these trends were examined. Methods: National tuberculosis surveillance data from 1999-2006 for England and Wales were used, including demographic, clinical and laboratory information. Trends in the proportion of tuberculosis cases with extrapulmonary disease were investigated using the ?2 trend test and associated factors using logistic regression. Results: Among all the cases of tuberculosis, the proportion with extrapulmonary disease increased from 48% in 1999 (2717 cases) to 53% in 2006 (4205 cases, p. ...
Sarcoidosis has evolved from the position of a disease of relative obscurity in the tropics, towards an increasing recognition and reporting from India and around. From the time sarcoidosis has been described, there has always been a belief that the disease is in some way related to tuberculosis. However, the inability to identify mycobacteria by histologic staining or culture from pathologic tissues continues to be one of the strongest arguments against a potential role for mycobacteria. Of late, molecular analysis (such as polymerase chain reaction [PCR] techniques) for nucleic acids of the putative agents serves as an alternative method for isolating fastidious organisms. A recent meta-analysis suggested a 30% prevalence rate of mycobacterial DNA in sarcoid samples but the individual studies reported detection rates from 0-50%. Moreover, most of these studies were published from countries with low prevalence for tuberculosis. If indeed mycobacteria are etiologically linked to sarcoidosis then ...

Hi Firstly Oats is an abbreviation for Osteoarticular Transfer System and it is used for treating focal cartilage defects mostly in the knee. I am having this same procedure c…arried out on the 10th July 2008. The procedure can be carried out either through key hole or open surgery depending on the size of defect. Mine is open surgery Really all this consists of is taking small plugs of cartilage and underlying bone from a non weight bearing area of the knee and insert them into the area that is needing the cartilage. This type of procedure is only suitable for smallish defects and mine is borderline at a size of 22mm by 15mm. If x-rays or an arthroscopic examination shows evidence of more widespread cartilage damage then this procedure will not be carried out. This would be because the Oats Procedure wouldnt benefit the patient. Some people i know have had this procedure carried out and have returned home the same day. Mine, i have been told i will be in hospital for 3 days. But, this ...
