Tuberculosis has been said to be the great mimicker of our times because of the spectrum of clinical and radiological presentation. We report the case of a 15-year-old girl who was referred as tuberculosis of the spine, but which was in fact a ganglioneuroblastoma of the spine. This case report highlights the radiologic features of spinal tuberculosis and the importance of obtaining a tissue diagnosis prior to treatment.
