After seven months the microbiological examination of gastric secretion and sputum analysis did not detect open lung tuberculosis, so the oral therapy was reduced to double combination with Isoniazid and Rifampicin. Nil Conflict of Interest: The joint space is still maintained in this stage. The late secondary osteoarthritis is always a concern despite the healing of the disease.

In the ‘protrusio-acetabuli’ type, the lesion is mainly in the floor of the acetabulum. There is no sex predilection for the disease.

In the stage of early coxifis, with progressive destruction of the joint, the limb goes into flexion, adduction, and internal rotation, with an apparent limb shortening. Shortening of limb and deformity further complicates the condition. The characteristic radiological manifestations of tuberculosis of the hip were osteopaenia and cystic bone lesions varying in size, resembling chondroblastoma, eosinophilic granuloma and subacute pyogenic osteomyelitis.
