Abstract

The commonest site of osseous tuberculosis is the spine. Most vertebral lesions are contiguous. Current research indicates the incidence of multiple level noncontiguous vertebral tuberculosis is 1.1% to 16%1. Here, we describe a case with noncontiguous multisegmental spinal TB with no intervertebral disc involvement. Presentation of noncontiguous multisegmental spinal TB without the involvement of intervertebral disc resembles that of a neoplasm or other spinal infection. Differentiation requires the presence of a combination of general symptoms, laboratory test results, appropriate radiological results, and the physician’s experience.
