Large paraspinal abscess. Tuberculosis, as a disease has been known since ancient times. It was described as early as to BCE as "Yakshama" in ancient Indian Medical literature as well as the Sushruta Samhita and Charaka Samhita.[1] InSir Percival Pott described the tubercular disease of the spinal column presenting clinically with kyphotic deformity and neurological deficit in European patients.[2]Author: Vibhu Krishnan Viswanathan, Surabhi Subramanian.

It causes a kind of tuberculous arthritis of the intervertebral joints. The infection can spread from two adjacent vertebrae into the adjoining intervertebral disc space. If only one vertebra is affected, the disc is normal, but if two are involved, the disc, which is avascular, cannot receive nutrients and collapses.

In in the subacute or convalescent stage book process called caseous necrosis the disc tissue dies leading to vertebral narrowing and eventually to vertebral collapse and spinal damage Specialty: Rheumatology.
