Fig 1. Healing under the influence of adjuvant immunomodulation in a case of iliac osteomyelitis.

(b) Despite being on uninterrupted supervised multidrug antitubercular chemotherapy for four months she continued to have pain, constitutional symptoms and discharge from sinuses. Her CD4 count at this stage was 453/cu. mm of blood. She was immunomodulated after four months of ATT. (c) Clinical picture 1 month after completion of immunomodulation.
