Surgical treatment of pyogenic and tubercular (TB) continues to evolve, thanks to minimally invasive techniques. Standard indications to surgery are one or a combination of the following pathological settings: severe bone loss, progressively enlarging abscess, failure of conservative treatment, severe instability and/or deformity, or progressive neurologic deficit. A mainstay of orthopedic science has always been to avoid metallic implant positioning in an infected area.

This article describes a case of dorsal–lumbar vertebral tuberculosis (Pott’s disease) first treated with antibiotic therapy, bed rest, and cast. After 2 months of treatment patient’s symptoms worsened. Minimally invasive posterior vertebral stabilization was carried out, with an excellent clinic and radiographic results.
