  • Pott disease ( Spondilitis Tubercolosis) merupakan penyakit manusia tertua.

  • Ditemukan dari jaman Batu, mummi Mesir kuno dan Peru.

  • In 1779, Percivall Pott, pemberi nama penyakit ini, menjelaskan perjalanan penyakit ini.

  • Neurologic abnormalities : 50% of cases

  • Kompresi spinal cord diikuti paraplegia, paresis, impaired sensation, nerve root pain, and/or caudaequina syndrome.

  • Cervical spine tuberculosis :less common but more serious,

    • Pain and stiffness.

    • Patients with lower cervical spine disease can present with dysphagia or stridor.

    • Symptoms can also include torticollis and hoarseness,

    • neurologic deficits.


  • The examination :  

    • Careful assessment of spinal alignment

    • Inspection of skin, with attention to detection of sinuses

    • Abdominal evaluation for subcutaneous flank mass

    • Meticulous neurologic examination


  • Pott disease have some degree of spine deformity (kyphosis).

  • Large cold abscesses of paraspinal tissues or psoas muscle may protrude under the inguinal ligament and may erode into the perineum or gluteal area.

  • Neurologic deficits may occur early in the course of Pott disease. Signs of such deficits depend on the level of spinal cord or nerve root compression.


  • Pott disease that involves the upper cervical spine can cause rapidly progressive symptoms.  

    • Retropharyngeal abscesses occur in almost all cases.

    • Neurologic manifestations occur early and range from a single nerve palsy to hemiparesis or quadriplegia.

  • Many persons with Pott disease (62-90% of patients in reported series6, 7) have no evidence of extraspinal tuberculosis

  • Information from imaging studies, microbiology, and anatomic pathology should help establish the diagnosis.

  • Lab Studies

  • Tuberculin skin test (purified protein derivative [PPD]) results are positive in 84-95%

  • LED

  • Microbiology studies

  • CT-guided procedures


  • Radiography

    • Lytic destruction of anterior portion of vertebral body

    • Increased anterior wedging

    • Collapse of vertebral body

    • Reactive sclerosis on a progressive lytic process

    • Enlarged psoas shadow with or without calcification


  • Additional radiographic findings may include the following:

    • Vertebral end plates are osteoporotic.

    • Intervertebral disks may be destroyed.

    • Vertebral bodies show variable degrees of destruction.

    • Fusiform paravertebral shadows suggest abscess formation.

    • Bone lesions may occur at more than one level.

Ct scanning

  • CT scanning provides much better bony detail of irregular lytic lesions, sclerosis, disk collapse, and disruption of bone circumference.

  • Low-contrast resolution provides a better assessment of soft tissue, particularly in epidural and paraspinal areas.

  • CT scanning reveals early lesions and is more effective for defining the shape and calcification of soft-tissue abscesses.

  • In contrast to pyogenic disease, calcification is common in tuberculous lesions.


  • MRI is the criterion standard for evaluating disk-space infection and osteomyelitis of the spine and cold Abcess.

  • MRI ==== Lihat neural compression.15, 16

  • MRI findings useful to differentiate tuberculous spondylitis from pyogenic

Bone scan

  • Other Tests

    Radionuclide scanning findings are not specific for Pott disease.

    Gallium and Tc-bone scans yield high false-negative rates (70% and up to 35%, respectively).18


Use a percutaneous CT-guided needle biopsy of bone lesions to obtain tissue samples.  

  • This is a safe procedure that also allows therapeutic drainage of large paraspinal abscesses.

  • Obtain a tissue sample for microbiology and pathology studies to confirm diagnosis and to isolate organisms for culture and susceptibility.

  • Some cases of Pott disease are diagnosed following an open drainage procedure (eg, following presentation with acute neurologic deterioration

  • Histologic findings

    Medical Care

    • Pott disease : Prolonged bed rest or a body cast. Pott disease carried a mortality rate of 20%, and relapse was common (30%)==before OAT

    • Thoracolumbar spine should be treated with combination chemotherapy for 6-9 months.19

    • Many experts still recommend chemotherapy for 9-12 months.

    Medical care1

    • 4-drug regimen should be used empirically to treat Pott disease.20

    • Isoniazid and Rifampin should be administered during the whole course of therapy.

    • Additional drugs are administered during the first 2 months of therapy. These are generally chosen among the first-line drugs, which include pyrazinamide, ethambutol, and streptomycin. The use of second-line drugs is indicated in cases of drug resistance.

      • Neurologic deficit (acute neurologic deterioration, paraparesis, paraplegia)

      • Spinal deformity with instability or pain

      • No response to medical therapy (continuing progression of kyphosis or instability)

      • Large paraspinal abscess

      • Nondiagnostic percutaneous needle biopsy sample

    Surgical care1

    • Anterior radical focal debridement and posterior stabilization with instrumentation.24, 10

    • Involves the cervical spine, the following factors justify early surgical intervention:  

      • High frequency and severity of neurologic deficits

      • Severe abscess compression that may induce dysphagia or asphyxia

      • Instability of the cervical spine


    • Orthopedic surgeons

    • Neurosurgeons

    • Rehabilitation teams

    • plaster beds, plaster jackets, and braces are still used.

    • Cast or brace immobilization was a traditional form of treatment but has generally been discarded. Patients with Pott disease should be treated with external bracing.


    • A 4-drug regimen should be used empirically to treat Pott disease. Treatment can be adjusted when susceptibility information becomes available. 

    • Isoniazid and rifampin should be administered during the whole course of therapy. Additional drugs are administered during the first 2 months of therapy. These are generally chosen among the first-line drugs, which include pyrazinamide, ethambutol, and streptomycin.


    • A 3-drug regimen usually includes isoniazid, rifampin, and pyrazinamide.

    • The use of second-line drugs is indicated in cases of drug resistance.

    • The duration of treatment is somewhat controversial. Although some studies favor a 6- to 9-month course, traditional courses range from 9 months to longer than 1 year. The duration of therapy should be individualized and based on the resolution of active symptoms and the clinical stability of the patient.

    Follow up

    • Further Inpatient Care

    • Once the diagnosis of Pott disease is established and treatment is started, the duration of hospitalization depends on the need for surgery and the clinical stability of the patient.

    • Further Outpatient Care

    • Patients with Pott disease should be closely monitored to assess their response to therapy and compliance with medication. Directly observed therapy may be required.

    • The development or progression of neurologic deficits, spinal deformity, or intractable pain should be considered evidence of poor therapeutic response. This raises the possibility of antimicrobial drug resistance as well as the necessity for surgery.

    Follow up1

    • Because of the risk of deformity exacerbations, children with Pott disease should undergo long-term follow-up until their entire growth potential is completed.25


    • Abscess

    • Spine deformities

    • Neurologic deficits and paraplegia


    Current treatment modalities are highly effective if not complicated by severe deformity or established neurologic deficit.

    • Therapy compliance and drug resistance are additional factors that significantly affect individual outcomes.

    • Paraplegia resulting from the active disease causing cord compression usually responds well to chemotherapy.

    • If medical therapy does not result in rapid improvement, operative decompression will greatly increase the recovery rate.

    • Paraplegia can manifest or persist during healing because of permanent spinal cord damage.

    Patient education

    • Patients with Pott disease should be instructed on the importance of therapy compliance.

    • For excellent patient education resources, visit eMedicine's Bacterial and Viral Infections Center. Also, see eMedicine's patient education article Tuberculosis.


    • Medical/Legal Pitfalls

    • A large proportion of patients with Pott disease do not present with extraskeletal disease. In reported series, only 10-38% of cases of Pott disease are associated with extraskeletal tuberculosis.

    • The diagnosis of tuberculousspondylitis should be investigated if strong clinical suspicion exists, even if suggestive pulmonary radiology findings are absent.

    • Other features suggestive of tuberculosis include the following:

      • Positive PPD result

      • Chest radiograph that shows apical scarring, infiltrates, or cavitary disease

      • Presence of risk factors for tuberculosis

    • Spinal tuberculosis should always be suspected when radiographs demonstrate a destructive spine process.
