Abstract

Tuberculosis is an infectious disease caused by the bacillus of Koch (BK). The multifocal form is usually associated with an immunosuppression of HIV. In this regard, we report an unusual case of multifocal tuberculosis associating visceral foci with a non-contiguous cervical, dorsal and lumbar spinal tuberculosis, in an immunocompetent subject. The patient had a medicalsurgical treatment. It is a disease with difficult diagnosis. We will discuss, in this case, the clinical, diagnostic and therapeutic characteristics of this clinical entity.
