Caption: Tuberculosis of the spine. Gross specimen of a spine infected with tuberculosis (TB), a condition known as Pott's disease. The vertebrae (blocks) have softened and collapsed causing a curved spine (kyphosis). Pott's disease is a secondary disease to TB and is caused when the Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacteria move from the lungs to the spine.
