Abstract: The authors report the cases of 3 patients with tuberculous spondylodiscitis. All patients suffered from severe back or low back pain. Posterolateral endoscopic debridement and irrigation were performed followed by retention of a drainage tube at the affected sites. Additional puncture and drainage were conducted at the same time when extensive cold abscesses were identified around the paravertebral muscle. All patients experienced immediate pain relief postoperatively. This technique is effective for rapid pain relief and in obtaining neurological resolution for patients in the early stages of tuberculous spondylodiscitis and may also be a good method for preventing further vertebral collapse and kyphotic spinal deformity such as Gibbus vertebrae.
