Poncet俟Q製 disease or tubercular rheumatism is uncommon, and there are not many related studies. No consensus has been achieved with respect to its etiopathogenesis. The low prevalence of this Poncet俟Q製 disease even in endemic regions suggests hidden mechanisms that require further research to fully comprehend this enigmatic disorder. Careful identification of primary focus of tubercular infection, clinical suspicion and knowledge of this disorder is crucial for prompt identification and treatment. This article aims to provide an overview of the recently published articles about Poncet俟Q製 disease. The article attempts to highlight key features of the disease for better understanding of this peculiar disorder.
