Abstract

Skeletal tuberculosis continues to be prevalent in countries where pulmonary tuber- culosis is still rampant. The localization in the spine is the commonest manifestation of skeletal tuberculosis. Thanks to the advent of chemo- therapeutic agents specific against tubercle bacillus, recent times have witnessed exciting changes in the philosophy of management of tuberculosis of spine. Hence a review of history, diagnosis and current status is apposite.
