Module: Infections and Inflammation
This Module, edited by Dr Bronek Boszczyk, addresses the different pathologies which can be encountered in infection and inflammation of the spine. Infections are categorised by the differentiating criteria of specific (tuberculosis) and non-specific infections. Indications for the different treatment modalities are discussed and the interdisciplinary character of this pathology is emphasised. A clear differentiation is made between the treatment of osteomyelitis of the spine and the epidural abscess.
Inflammatory disorders, specifically rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis, are presented with a focus of early rheumatological diagnosis and pharmacological treatment. The fully fledged deformity in late stage ankylosing spondylitis is alluded to but is dealt with more comprehensively in Module 4, Adult Deformity.
