This case report discusses the presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of a 22-year-old man with extrapulmonary tuberculosis of the foot. Extrapulmonary tuberculosis is extremely rare and accounts for less than 10% of osteoarticular tuberculosis. Radiographic and magnetic resonance imaging correlations are introduced.
