In advanced cases of tuberculous lesions of the bones and soft tissues of the foot, amputation through the leg is advised.

Treatment by careful surgical excision has proved to be an excellent method of management for advanced local lesions, especially those in adult patients. By this means, it is often possible to eradicate entirely the local disease and to save a useful portion of the foot.
