The fifth edition of “Tuberculosis of the skeletal system” (Bones, Joints, Spine, and Bursal Sheaths) written by Prof. Surendra Mohan Tuli, published by Jaypee Brothers Medical Publishers (P) Ltd., New Delhi is now available.

The book is unique because it is based on critical analysis of single surgeon's experience in treating osteoarticular and spinal tuberculosis (TB) and has served as a universal treatment guide for cases of osteoarticular and spinal TB. The personal experience is integrated with extensive literature search. The book as before is divided into three sections.

Section one covers the general consideration about mycobacterium TB, osteoarticular TB, diagnosis, and drug therapy (antitubercular treatment). The characteristic of mycobacterium tuberculosis, pathological bases of disease improves the understanding of osteoarticular TB to be useful in planning treatment protocol of skeletal TB.

Section two covers the extraspinal regional TB, which covers each joint including TB of rare sites, tubercular osteomyelitis, and TB of tendon sheaths and bursae. Each chapter includes the pathology, classification of disease severity, and orthopaedic treatment with expected outcome of each subtypes.

Section 3 includes TB of spine covering clinical features, imaging diagnosis, differential diagnosis, neurologic complication, management, and outcome. The surgical management with operation details is covered in separate chapter.

This edition is updated as far as latest references are concerned. This is the only complete book on osteoarticular and spinal TB which provides a sound scientific basis to treat TB of skeletal system.

I recommend this book for personal use and for institutional libraries.
