Tuberculous osteomyelitis in the ulna of a patient undergoing hemodialysis

, : Tuberculous osteomyelitis in the ulna of a patient undergoing hemodialysis. Internal Medicine 52(1): 135-139

A 76-year-old woman on hemodialysis (HD) presented with pain and swelling in the left wrist and forearm. The osteomyelitis occurred in the part of the ulna adjacent to the arteriovenous fistula. Mycobacterium tuberculosis was identified in pus obtained from the left forearm, leading to a diagnosis of tuberculous osteomyelitis. The patient was treated with anti-tuberculous drugs and her symptoms improved. In this study, we report a case of tuberculous osteomyelitis occurring in the ulna, which is not the usual site of predilection for tuberculosis infection. As HD patients exhibit a high frequency of extrapulmonary tuberculosis, tuberculous osteomyelitis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of infectious osteomyelitis. In addition, it may be useful to perform stab cultures at an early stage in order to diagnose tuberculous osteomyelitis.
