Tuberculosis of the Pelvic Bone

A grand aunt of mine died in 1918 from tuberculosis of the pelvis. She was 24. She died in the Lock hospital in Glasgow. Could you suggest reasons why she had this disease?

The bacteria Mycobacteria tuberculosis causes tuberculosis. Usually, tuberculosis affects the lungs, but it can spread through the bloodstream to other sites, including the joints and bones.
