Abstract Extrapulmonary manifestations of tuberculosis are reported in less than one in five cases with the knee affected in 8\% after the spine and hip. We report a case of isolated highly erosive tuberculosis of the knee presenting in a previously fit Vietnamese woman. The difficulties of diagnosis, modalities of chemotherapeutic management, and surgical treatment are discussed.
