Figure 2: (A-D): Tuberculous arthritis of the right hip. Plain radiograph (A) of the right hip demonstrates periarticular osteopenia, indistinct margins of the articular surfaces, and erosions of the femoral head and neck (asterisks). Coronal T1W MRI (B) shows a large erosion in the femoral neck (white arrow) and hypointense bone marrow edema within the acetabulum and lateral aspect of the femoral head. Axial fat-suppressed T2W MRI (C) shows hyperintense bone marrow edema in the right femoral head and acetabulum. Axial fat-suppressed T1W MRI (D) after gadolinium contrast administration shows peripheral enhancement of the large erosion in the femoral neck (white arrow). Note also some enhancement of the bone marrow of the femoral head and acetabulum as well as of the joint space
