PARAPLEGIA IN AN ELDERLY PATIENT DUE TO POTT'S DISEASE

Öz:
Spinal tüberküloz (Pott hastalığı) günümüzde halen bir çok ülkede önemli bir sağlık sorunudurve ağır nörolojik kayıplara neden olabilmektedir. Pott hastalığına bağlı parapleji, hastalığınerken dönemlerinde yada yıllar sonra ortaya çıkabilmektedir. Genellikle torasik vertebralardaortaya görülmekte, kemik yıkımı ve spinal kord basısına bağlı olarak da nörolojik bulgulara sebepolabilmektedir. Bu makalede, kliniğimize bel ağrısı ile yönlendirilen, Pott paraplejisi tanısı konan73 yaşındaki bir hasta sunulmaktadır. Hasta daha öncesinde pulmoner tüberküloz tanısı ile takipedilmekte ve anti-tüberküloz tedavi almaktaydı. Hasta beş haftalık yoğun rehabilitasyon programından sonra bağımsız olarak yürüyebildi ve minimal bağımlı olarak taburcu edildi. Sonuçolarak yaşlı hastalarda travmatik olmayan spinal kord yaralanmaları ihtimali konusunda dikkatliolunmalıdır.

YAŞLI BİR HASTADA POTT HASTALIĞINA BAĞLI GELİŞEN PARAPLEJİ OLGUSU

Öz:
Spinal tuberculosis (Pott's disease) is still an important problem in many countries and mayresult in severe neurological deficits. Pott's paraplegia can occur in the early period of the disease or many years later. Pott's disease usually occurs in the thoracic vertebrae and may causeneurological symptoms as a consequence of bone destruction and spinal cord compression. Inthis article, we present the case of a 73-year-old diagnosed with Pott's paraplegia who wasreferred to our clinic with back pain. He had been previously diagnosed with pulmonary tuberculosis and had received anti-TB therapy. After five weeks of an intensive rehabilitation program,the patient could walk independently and was discharged with minimal dependency. We conclude that there should be more awareness of the possibility of non-traumatic spinal cord injuriesin elderly patients.
