One hundred and thirty six patients with skeletal Tuberculosis were studied at Assam Medical College, Dibrugarh during 1996-98. Age of occurrence varied from 3½ years to 75 years. Young male adults had a higher incidence of the disease. The spine was the commonest site of involvement, with 79, cases, followed by Hip and Knee joints. The socioeconmically backward were the commonest victims. A.T.T. with some sort of external support were needed in 120 cases, and surgical intervention was needed in 16 cases. Anti tubercular treatment upto 16 months gave satisfactory results.
