Recurrent Spinal Tuberculosis with HIV Infection After Surgery: A Rare Case of Recurrence and Drug Resistance – Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

This article discusses a case study of spinal tuberculosis complicated by HIV infection. The patient experienced a relapse after the initial surgery and developed drug resistance. The first operation involved lumbar lesion removal and internal fixation, while the second operation involved puncture and drainage of an abscess. The management of patients with HIV/TB co-infection requires specific considerations regarding medication regimens, surgical interventions, and nursing care. The study highlights the need for further research to improve understanding and treatment of HIV/TB co-infection

ABSTRACT

Tuberculosis (TB) and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) are prevalent infectious diseases that continue to pose a significant global health burden. The co-infection of mycobacterium tuberculosis and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) represents a substantial public health challenge, particularly in developing nations. In this study, we present an exceptional case of spinal tuberculosis complicated by HIV infection, which exhibited relapse post-surgery necessitating reoperation, along with the emergence of drug resistance. The first operation was lumbar lesion removal, decompression, internal fixation, and bone graft fusion assisted by lumbar discioscopy. The second operation was ultrasound-guided puncture and drainage of right psoas major abscess. The management of patients with HIV/TB co-infection demands specific considerations regarding medication regimens, surgical interventions, and nursing care. However, limited experience exists in treating such individuals, thus further research is imperative to enhance our understanding of HIV/TB co-infection.
