Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

Bone Tuberculosis is a curable disease with the presently available antituberculous drugs provided a correct diagnosis of bone TB is made.

Its very unlikely that the symtoms are still persisting despite the treatment. A likelihood of a secondary bacterial infection is a possibility.

A thorough clinical examination and appropriate investigations like TB serology, TB antibodies, MRI scan of the involved area and other hematological parameters etc are needed to establish a possible diagnosis.

Hope this information is helpful.

You can reach me directly on my profile - for any further clarification.

Good day
