Abstract

Abstract.

Spinal tuberculosis or Pott's disease of the spine associated with pleural involvement has long intrigued researchers regarding the nature and pathogenesis of their occurrence. We describe two interesting patients of spinal tuberculosis, one with cervical and another with thoracic spine disease, with pleural involvement, which developed after lateral extension of cold abscess involving the parietal pleura, and without any evidence of pulmonary disease.
