Resumo

MUTETI, EN  e  GOVENDER, S. It is not always tuberculosis of the spine: ganglioneuroblastoma. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.3, pp. 38-40. ISSN 2309-8309.

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.
