It is known that atypical presentations are characterized by the absence of lesions to the intervertebral disc 5so we could say that our cases are atypical presentation.

Published studies are primarily clinical and epidemiological research but also basic. Imaging studies are of great importance for the diagnosis, such as plain radiographs in which can be observe the processes of the vertebrae and the loss of its anatomy, the first radiographic sign is osteoporosis of the body affected, followed by osteolysis which can progress to spondylodiscitis 1113 ; the axial CT scan allows us to observe the exact extent of bone lesion, lesions within the vertebral body and the presence of invasion of the spinal canal, can be used for diagnosis and monitoring of disease 11 – It has high sensitivity in detecting changes at the level of the spinal cord and the initial inflammatory changes in the vertebral bodies.

A MRI coronal T2 of backbone, bilateral paravertebral isointense image is observed between T2—T5; B MRI sagittal T2 of backbone, isointense image between T2—T5 is observed with fracture and collapse of the vertebral body of T5; C axial tomography of the chest with bone window in which a destruction of the vertebral body of the T6 and hypodense paravertebral image is observed; D axial tomography of the chest with bone window esopndilodiscitis which destruction espojdilodiscitis the vertebral body of T5 is observed, with involvement of the spinal canal and hypodense paravertebral image.

It is the most common granulomatous disease of the spine, which is characterized by being chronic and slowly progressive, to its confirmation Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolation or identification of tyberculosa in a sample obtained from the injured vertebrae is needed 23.

Our patients had no pulmonary tuberculosis, however one of them presented brain abscess secondary to Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which is rare and this combination has not been reported in the literature.

In the physical examination, decreased muscle strength and tendon reflexes of lower limbs, and sensory level in T6 dermatome were found. Abscess drainage was performed with Ziehl-Neelsen stain, espondilodiscitiis acid-fast bacilli were compatibles with Mycobacterium tuberculosis were observed, confirming the diagnosis with culture.

The treatment was successful, currently he presents results of the polymerase chain reaction PCR for Mycobacterium tuberculosis negative and sensory and motor recovery of the limbs, normal tendon reflexes, he performs physical effort without complications, without the presence of chest pain and also he has remained afebrile.
