This is a 40-year-old woman with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). She received empirical treatment for presumed TB of the right knee joint. The arthritis and the constitutional symptoms resolved despite the patient«SQ»s poor compliance. One year later, she presented with TB abscesses involving the upper end of right tibia and bilateral gluteus muscles, which proved to be resistant to isoniazid, rifampicin and ethambutol. The patient was successfully treated with pyrazinamide, ofloxacin and amikacin.
