spinal tuberculosis complicated with sinus tract

Spinal tuberculosis complicated with sinus is one of the serious and common complications of spinal tuberculosis. Before the advent of anti-tuberculosis drugs, the incidence rate was 18. 5%. The longer the sinus, the shorter the life, and the mortality rate at that time was as high as 34%. With the advent of anti-tuberculosis drugs, especially rifampicin, the incidence of anti-tuberculosis drugs has dropped significantly.
