AbstractOf 37 consecutive patients suffering from tuberculosis of the lumbosacral spine, 26 were reviewed after an average follow-up of 20 years. Those presenting at under 10 years of age usually had a discharging sinus or a pointing abscess and a visible kyphosis. In older patients, low back pain was the predominant presenting symptom. Neurological involvement was uncommon. Both operative and conservative treatment had resulted in fusion but all patients treated conservatively ended up with a kyphosis associated with trunk shortening. They had a higher incidence of back pain and more complications in pregnancy. Anterior debridement and fusion with a strut graft can reduce the incidence and size of kyphosis, but is technically demanding. Treatment remains difficult and requires individual consideration.
