Abstract

The sternoclavicular joint is a rare site for extra pulmonary tuberculosis. Diagnosis may be delayed because of its rarity and unusual clinical presentation. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment with standard antituberculous agents would hasten complete recovery. We report a patient with sternoclavicular joint tuberculosis in association with pleural effusion.
