Tuberculosis tenosynovitis of the fibular sheath Volume 25, issue 4, Décembre 2009


Tuberculosis Tenosynovitis of the fibular sheath is an uncommon localization of skeletal tuberculosis. The diagnosis is often underestimated because of the poor clinical symptoms and their resemblance with other pathological conditions. The treatment is codified and is effective in the majority of cases. We report a case of Moroccan woman who presented a tuberculosis tenosynovitis of the fibular sheath; we studied this case in the light of a review of literature.
