Tuberculosis of the spine (Pott's disease) is the most common skeletal involvement in tuberculosis, and is often accompanied with neurological deficiency. Surgical treatment was previously the mainstay of therapy in cases of Pott's disease with neurological deficiency, but since clinical recovery was found in patients awaiting surgery, conservative management with antibiotic treatment as a first Line treatment has been advocated. This conservative approach may improve the patients' neurological status while avoiding the morbidity and mortality of surgical treatment.
