Resumen

KIGERA, JWM  y  ORWOTHO, N. Multifocal tuberculous spondylitis with rib involvement: a case report and review of the literature. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.2, pp. 44-47. ISSN 2309-8309.

Tuberculosis is a common diagnosis in the developing world. Its incidence is increasing in the developed world due to immigrants from endemic regions, increased cases of immune-compromised patients, multi-drug resistance and low socio-economic status. Tuberculous spondylitis is the commonest extra-pulmonary manifestation of tuberculosis. The rib is only very rarely involved. We present a case of multifocal tuberculous spondylitis in the T6-9 and L3 regions with involvement of the ninth rib.

Palabras clave : tuberculosis; spine; ribs; surgery; multifocal.
