Abstract:

Tubercular septic arthritis after shoulder arthroscopy has not been reported in the English literature to our knowledge. A case of Tubercular septic arthritis of the shoulder following arthroscopic rotator cuff repair is presented. The sinus and the wound healed well, and laboratory parameters returned to normal, which suggests that the infection was well controlled with the treatment follow-up of 1 year. But the functional score was poor due to repeated surgeries; long-standing infection and the arthritic changes developed. Tubercular infection can occur after arthroscopic shoulder surgery especially in healthcare workers in zones endemic for Tuberculosis. Level of evidence V.
