Abstract :

Mrs. E.A., 58 years, consulted for a fleshy tumor of the left ankle whose biopsy revealed a richly vascularized granulation tissue surrounded by abundant inflammatory cells without tuberculoid granuloma or any evidence of malignancy and was in favor of a botriomycome. Radiography of the ankle showed an aspect of moth-eaten of the calcaneus. The joint ultrasound showed heterogeneous collection whose puncture found no liquid. Computed tomography of the foot showed bone geodes, periarticular collection and suggestive soft tissue calcifications of chronic osteitis. Excision of botriomycome was performed, pus drain and biopsy of the underlying bone. The pus bacteriological study was not contributive. The culture was sterile. Bone biopsy showed epithelioid granulomas with giant cell ranges and caseous necrosis in favor of bone tuberculosis. Search of other locations was negative. The botriomycome or pyogenic granuloma is a benign inflammatory vascular tumor of skin and mucous membranes, often due to a trauma. The association with deep infection including bone is rare. This observation has revealed an association with bone tuberculosis.
