This article presents a case report concerning long-term follow-up of tuberculosis of the proximal part of the tibia involving the growth plate. Growth disturbances are well known to occur after injury to growth plates in children. However, in the treatment of benign tumors adjacent to the physis or infections, it is unclear what extent of curettage would cause early closure of the growth plate.
