Abstract

Spinal tuberculosis with paraplegia is rarely seen in Israel. All the 10 patients that were hospitalized in our rehabilitation departments had contracted the disease abroad prior to their immigration to Israel. The comprehensive rehabilitation process must include close cooperation between pulmonary physicians, orthopedic surgeons and rehabilitation medicine specialists. An updated review of the relevant literature is presented.
