Abstract

The concentration of antituberculous drugs in blood and pus from tuberculous spinal lesions was measured initially, and again after 3 to 5 months of treatment in 4 cases. The pre- and post-chemotherapy drug concentrations were almost the same. This indicated that healing does not interfere with the penetration of the drugs into the lesion.
