Figure 30 :A 26-year-old human immunodeficiency virus-positive female presented with shortness of breath. The chest X-ray shows a large left-sided pleural effusion and loss of height and erosion of the articular plates between the 9th and 10th vertebral bodies associated with soft tissue swelling. A sagittal T2-weigted magnetic resonance scan of the dorsal spine shows complete obliteration of the disc between the 9th and 10th dorsal vertebral bodies associated with fluid collection anterior to the spine representing pus. Acid-fast bacilli were identified in the aspirated pus
