ABSTRACT

The spinal kyphosis caused by bony ankylosis is ankylosing spondylitis and tuberculous spondylitis. There are some reports on spinal fractures through the fused vertebral body in ankylosing spondylitis, but there is no report of spinal fractures occurring in a fused vertebral body after tuberculous spondylitis. The authors report a case of spinal fracture at the apex of acute angular kyphosis after tuberculous spondylitis, which resulted in a spontaneous correction of kyphosis without neurological deficits. The fracture was stabilized by posterior interbody fusion using a mesh cage after a posterior vertebral column resection and posterolateral fusion.
