Author(s): Shubham Mishra*, Jeetesh Gawande, Pk Verma and Aditi Rajan

Tuberculosis (TB) is still a very common disease in developing countries. Primary tuberculosis of the sternoclavicular joint is an extremely rare disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacillus. Diagnosis was arrived at by clinical, radiological, and microscopic examinations. Diagnosis is usually based on demonstration of granulomas on histopathology. Good radiographs and imaging studies are supportive for diagnosis. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment with standard drug regimen of Anti-Tubercular Therapy (ATT) would hasten complete recovery. Here we are reporting 9 cases who presented with swelling of sternoclavicular joint with non-specific signs and symptoms later diagnosed to be a case of sternoclavicular joint tuberculosis. Patients were treated and cured with antitubercular regimen.
