Abstract

We reviewed the MR imaging features of ankle tuberculosis and determined the role of MR in its diagnosis. A retrospective analysis of 14 cases of ankle tuberculosis imaged with MRI was performed. Plain radiographs were also reviewed where available, and the imaging characteristics were noted. We also reviewed the medical records in order to assess the impact of the imaging findings on management of these patients. Magnetic resonance imaging is extremely helpful for detection, mapping the extent and resolution of the disease. It can identify cases, enables early institution of antituberculous chemotherapy and might obviate the need for surgery.
