Abstract

Tuberculous dactylitis is a rare condition and a diagnostic challenge. Tissue biopsies can be negative for microscopy and culture. Polymerase chain reaction and DNA probes for mycobacterium tuberculosis can provide an earlier diagnosis. Surgery and antimicrobial therapy remain the mainstay of management.
