Tuberculosis, caused by mycobacteria in human, is a common infective disease in developing countries, including South Korea. Psoas and paraspinal abscesses associated with spinal tuberculosis are very rare with uncertain clinical appearance, so that misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis often occurs. Psoas abscess may spread to adjacent structure or hematogenous route from a distant site. The aim of this case report is to present our experience in management of a persistent cutaneous fistula associated with a psoas abscess and paraspinal abscess secondary to TB spondylitis.
