Mycobacterium Tuberculosis infections are moderately frequent in developing countries. Because of migratory flows, these diseases will always have an increasing prevalence even in those countries that do not usually present these types of cases. Extra-pulmonary tuberculosis often affects the musculoskeletal system. The sites most involved are the spine (Pott's disease) and the large joints, especially hips and knees. We describe a patient with tuberculosis of the hip, who underwent total hip arthroplasty.
