ABSTRACT
We report a case of 21-year-old woman with atypical form of spinal tuberculosis. The patient had simultaneous involvement of C2, T4, T10, T11, L1-3 and S2, which resembles spinal malignancies. In this patient, pulmonary tuberculosis was not detected. However, biopsy revealed tuberculosis. The patient was treated successfully with surgery followed by anti-tuberculosis therapy. It is important to be aware that spinal tuberculosis may resemble spinal malignancy.
Key Words: Multiple spinal tuberculosis; Malignancy
