Noncontiguous multiple tuberculous spondylitis is not uncommon, and most of the reported cases have lesions only on 2 or 3 levels. To the best of our knowledge, multifocal extensive spinal TB involving the whole spine is rarely reported in the literature, which may be presented as asymptomatic and have a higher incidence of neurological complications. It is noticeable that the possibility of TB is considered for any skip lesions involving the spine cautiously. Diagnosis and treatment at early stages would resolve the neurological deficits without operation.
