Most common symptom is local pain and swelling followed by restriction of movement of the affected area. There is wasting of the regional muscle and deformity may occur.

Reactivation of tubercular arthritis after treatment occurs in 17-34% of individuals. Reactivation most commonly occurs in hip joint. Joints swelling and evidence of effusion, periarticular abscess and chronic sinus formation occur late. Multiple joint involvements has been reported.
