The clinical expression of the disease varies considerably from patient to patient. Acute onset with back pain, paraesthesia, muscular weakness and sphincter dysfunction are common features. However, an insidious onset can occur, with a progressive pattern of symptoms mimicking intraspinal tumour, polyradiculopathy or spinal demyelination. Such chronic onset has been described and may occur many years after apparently resolved intracranial TBM [1]. In treated cases, inactive fibrotic and glial tissues remain in the spinal canal, often combined with cavitation in the spinal cord, representing areas of previous spinal infarction or healed tuberculous myelitis.

As opposed to some other spinal infections, TB tends to involve all the intraspinal elements simultaneously, although cases of isolated TB myelitis and isolated extradural abscess have been described [6,8]. The imaging findings are not specific to TB and may be seen in a wide range of diseases, notably in other infections as well as fungal, neoplastic, granulomatous, parasitic, demyelinating and iatrogenic conditions. Spinal Arachnoiditis Chemical arachnoiditis was, in the past, the most common cause of lumbar nerve-root adhesion.
