Abstract

It is unclear whether the destructive lesions of the vertebral bodies in the spondylodiscitis of ankylosing spondylitis (AS) are related to mechanical stress or inflammation. We describe early immunohistopathological findings in an AS patient with severe symptomatic spondylodiscitis that support an inflammatory origin.
