Abstract

Modern imaging methods including plain radiography, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and bone scan improve the diagnostic accuracy of Pott's disease. However, atypical forms of Pott's disease are often misdiagnosed. There are a few reports available on multifocal Pott's disease. To the authors' knowledge, there are no domestic reports of multifocal Pott's disease with a concomitant spinal involvement of the posterior element. This article describes two rare cases of multifocal Pott's disease, with a review of the relevant literature.
