My Son aged 1.5 years, having tuberculosis in his left foot. Last September 2015, he had swelling & red color.So we took x-ray, the swelling was found in the x-ray but there was no fracture. Doctor suggested to take MRI & found that there is PUS collection & it is not affecting the bone. Then he had a minor surgery on the left foot to drain out. we went to biopsy for the collected pus. After 2 months, again swelling was seen & we took ultrasound-scan & seen that some kind of fluid is collected.
