DISSEMINATED SKELETAL TUBERCULOSIS OF MULTIPLE NONCONTIGUOUS BONES: A RARE CASE REPORT
Balbir Malhotra, Dilbag Singh*, Amritpal Kaur and Jasvir Kaur
Disseminated Tuberculosis is when two or more than two non contiguous organs are involved, because of tuberculosis. It is a common type of tuberculosis but disseminated skeletal tuberculosis with multiple non contiguous bones involved without involvement of any other organ is very rare. We hereby report a 12 year old non immune compromised female patient who presented with multifocal skeletal tuberculosis of extremities with involvement of right elbow, left toe and right ankle without involvement of any other organ. The case is being reported because of its extreme rarity.
Keywords: Disseminated, tuberculosis, skeletal, non contiguous.
