Abstract

An 80-year-old man with previous intravesicular bacille Calmette-Guérin therapy developed mass lesions of the lower thoracic spine. Metastatic disease was suspected.

The patient underwent a course of radiation; however, biopsy later demonstrated fibrosis and cultures grew Mycobacterium bovis.

The patient was treated with a course of isoniazid, rifampin, and ethambutol.
