Abstract

Background: A 28-year-old lady of Asian origin presented with a painful left foot associated with swelling, purulent discharge and surrounding cellulitis. Her temperature was normal and blood results were within normal limits. Her past medical history included pulmonary tuberculosis. The patient had plain radiographs followed by a MRI scan of the left foot. She subsequently had a biopsy prior to surgical treatment.
