This chapter provides detailed reviews of the musculoskeletal manifestations of tuberculosis and mycobacterial disease; other bone and joint infections; infections in immunocompromised paediatric patients; and guidance for the workup of pyrexia of unknown origin. Updated guidance on the management of rheumatic fever and Lyme disease is provided, including detailed antibiotic regimens. Management algorithms for immunocompromised patients exposed to VZV are described, as well as treatment of VZV should it occur in an immunocompromised patient. It also provides detailed guidance on immunization schedules for the immunocompromised. A highlight of the second edition is a section on HIV, with emphasis on rheumatological manifestations and their management.
