Abstract

Introduction: Thoraco lumbar fractures occur as a result of motor vehicle trauma or fall from a height, with the remainder caused by athletic participation and assault. Neurological injury complicates the fractures at the thoracic lumbar level. Case report: A 68-year-old male was brought to the hospital by his family members with complains of low back ache with pain radiating to the back of lower limb. There was a history of fall from bus 2 months back. X-ray and MRI co-relation confirmed D10-D11 and L1-L2 wedge compression with spondylodiscitis of D11. He was managed with posterior stabilisation at D8, D9, D10, D12, L2, L3 with laminectomy at D11 and discectomy at D10-D11 disc.

Conclusion: Thoraco lumbar vertebral fracture has the best outcome when surgical management is the management modality.
