Özet

Objects: Spinal tuberculosis (Tbc) is an infrequently encountered clinical condition in children, especially in newborns and infants. There are a few cases reported in the literature up to date. Early diagnosis and treatment are of extreme importance in this age group for prevention of catastrophic complications. The purpose of this paper is to focus on the differential diagnosis and treatment.
