AbstractTuberculosis of the spine is still a common disease in some endemic regions and is returning to developed countries. The development of the polymerase chain reaction technique and magnetic resonance imaging in the past decade has greatly improved diagnostic accuracy. Combination chemotherapy remains the most important and effective treatment, whereas surgical intervention can help in achieving earlier fusion and less late deformity. Early results of spinal instrumentation with or without fusion appear to be promising in further enhancing good outcome. (C) 2000 Lippincott Williams and Wilkins, Inc.
