Abstract

A 46-year-old male presented with late onset of paraparesis caused by kyphotic deformity due to infantile tuberculosis. A posterior circumferential decompression was performed from the sixth thoracic to the eighth thoracic levels. His neurological status improved with no evidence of kyphosis progression at the last follow up (2 years 5 months postoperatively). The paraparesis was caused by bony compression following increasing kyphosis above and below the block vertebrae due to growth. Posterior circumferential decompression is a less invasive surgical intervention for this condition.
