Abstract

The CT findings in 16 patients with nontuberculous spinal infections were reviewed. The specificity of certain CT features as well as the usefulness of intravenous contrast medium administration are discussed. The associated clinical presentations and predisposing factors are outlined. Emphasis is placed on a combined clinical, radiographic approach in facilitating an early diagnosis.
