Caption: Tuberculous dactylitis. X-ray of the right hand of a patient with dactylitis (swelling of the short bones) resulting from a tuberculosis infection. This condition, also known as spina ventosa, can affect the fingers and toes and leads to extremely painful swelling. It is caused when Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacteria move from the lungs to the bones via the blood. Treatment is with antibiotics.
