    This presentation summarizes present knowledge of spinal tuberculosis and its management.

    It describes and updates material the author has previously published on this subject.

    The scientific basis for the clinical management of spinal tuberculosis has been well established by the British Medical Research Council group and Hong Kong surgeons.

    It is believed, however, that well-controlled basic and clinical studies are required if the incidence of the three unwanted complications of spinal tuberculosis is to be reduced further.

    Antituberculosis agents are the mainstay of management, with chemotherapy for 12 months preferred to shorter courses.

    The standard is a combination of isoniazid, rifampin, and pyrazinamide, with or without ethambutol.
