Abstract

A 17 year old girl visited several physicians with the complaints of upper central chest pain for eight months. She was finally diagnosed as upper thoracic (third thoracic vertebra) tuberculous spondylitis. The diagnosis was probably delayed for its unusual site of presentation and delayed onset of constitutional features like fever, anorexia and weight loss.
