We report a case of an adult male with neurofibromatosis and chronic low back pain. Evaluation revealed an anterior sacral meningocele, pulmonary tuberculosis, and later in the course of his illness, an osteolytic tuberculous mass in the sacrum. The patient was treated medically with a good outcome. The nature of anterior sacral meningoceles and tuberculosis spondylitis, the differential diagnoses, and relevant treatment options are discussed.
