Abstract

We report a case of Aspergillus osteomyelitis of the spine in a 52-year-old female with back pain. Anteroposterior and lateral roentgenograms showed narrowing of the intervertebral disc space of T12-L1 with irregular vertebral endplates. MRI showed spondylodiscitis at T12-L1. Although tuberculous spondylitis is far more prevalent that fungal spondylitis, it is difficult to differentiate one from the other radiographically.
