Three patients with tuberculosis, all manifesting monarticular joint involvement, among 845 renal allograft recipients at the University of Minnesota are reported on. Clinical symptoms, methods of diagnosis, and optimal antibiotic regimes are discussed. The physician must suspect tuberculous joint disease when confronted with monarticular swelling and pain in the transplant recipient.
