VERGARA-AMADOR, Enrique; GALVAN-VILLAMARIN, Fernando  and  PINA-QUINTERO, Marcela. Primary osteoarticular tuberculosis: the reappearance of a forgotten pathology. Rev. salud pública [online]. 2007, vol.9, n.3, pp.465-470. ISSN 0124-0064.

2 cases of osteoarticular tuberculosis infection are presented (one in the talus and the other in the spine) in seemingly healthy patients having no epidemic antecedents. These are representative cases of primary osteoarticular tuberculosis, showing a gradual increase over the last decade in Colombia in patients without immunological alterations and having no family antecedents or history of contact.

Keywords : Osteoarticular tuberculosis; bone tuberculosis; talus.
