  2. 2. Anatomy and Physiology The spinal cord is the largest nerve in the body, and it is comprised of the nerves which act as the communication system for the body. The nerve fibers within the spinal cord carry messages to and from the brain to other parts of the body. The spinal cord is surrounded by protective bone segments, called the vertebral column. The vertebral column is comprised of seven cervical vertebrae, twelve thoracic vertebrae, five lumbar vertebrae and five sacral vertebrae. The vertebral column also provides attachment points for muscles of the back and ribs. The vertebral disks serve as shock absorbers during activities such as walking, running and jumping, they also allow the spine to flex and extend.
  3. 3. Introduction Potts disease  Is a spine infection associated with tuberculosis that is characterized by bone destruction, fracture, and collapse of the vertebrae, resulting in kyphotic deformity.  Is the presentation of the extra-pulmonary tuberculosis arthritis of the intervertebral joints  Also called tuberculosis spondylitis, tuberculous spondyloarthropathy, spinal TB, musculoskeletal tuberculosis  The causative agent is Mycobacterium Tubercule  Particularly the lower thoracic and the upper lumbar regions are affected.  Commonly localized in the thoracic 11 and thoracic 12.  The original name was formed after Percivall Potts a London surgeon.  Patient with BCG has 80% immunity.  Pathognomonic Sign: Gibbus Formation  Signs and Symptoms: Back Pain, Fever, Night Sweating, Anorexia, Weight Loss, Spinal mass, sometimes associated with numbness, tingling, or muscle weakness of the legs  Diagnostic Exam: Blood Test: elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, Tuberculin test, Bone Scan, Radiographs of the spine, CT of the spine, Bone biopsy, MRI  Predisposing Factors: Direct contaminant especially in children, Malnutrition, Poor Environmental Condition, Trauma
