Abstract

Poncet's disease (PD) is a rare aseptic form of polyarthritis occurring with active tuberculosis (TB) infection. Signs and symptoms of arthritis resolve with antituberculous treatment. Clinicians, especially in the countries of high disease burden, should be aware of PD as one of the differential diagnoses, even in patients without typical symptoms of TB. Here we report a case of migratory polyarthritis diagnosed as active pulmonary TB and Poncet's disease.
