Abstract

Tuberculosis can affect the sacroiliac joint. The involvement has been reported in up to 10 percent of patients with osteoarticular tuberculosis. The onset is usually insidious, and early diagnosis requires a high index of clinical suspicion. Lack of awareness of this presently uncommon form of infection often leads to diagnostic delay and increased morbidity. Early diagnosis and proper treatment with anti-tuberculous medication could obtain a satisfactory functional outcome. We report a case of tuberculous sacroiliitis in a 21 year-old male patient including his clinical presentation, radiographic features and outcome of medical treatment.
