Tuberculosis of the Skeletal System 

Tuli’s Tuberculosis of the Skeletal System book has provided a scientific foundation to treat bone tuberculosis to Orthopedic surgeons in the developing world for the last 30 years. It gives a clear insight to diagnose and treat this very old disease, which is known and described in the historical literature.

This is a basic as well as a reference book on tuberculosis of the bone and joint. Newer technology, imaging and subsequent research throws newer light on the understanding of the pathophysiology, diagnostics and treatment principles to improve the outcome of treatment.

HIV and multidrug resistance has compounded the management of osteoarticular tuberculosis. This fourth edition has added serological tests and immune modulation for multidrug-resistant and therapeutically refractory cases.

I recommend this new edition to be read by one and all and as a reference book in libraries in an attempt to solve the menacing oldest infective disease, i.e. “Tuberculosis.
