Thoracic Spine Pyogenic Infection

69 year old lady with Chronic Renal Failure undergoing hemodialysis complained of severe back pain.

MRI revealed infective focus at T 11-12 level.

CT scan showed gross destruction of T 11-12 vertebra with loss of structural support to the spine.

Surgery was done to fix the spine with Pedicle screws. The vertebral body destroyed by infection was replaced with a cage and bone graft.

This surgery restores mechanical stability of the spine. 

Her cultures grew E. coli for which she was treated with antibiotics.
