Mold toxicity is a subset of pyogenic spondylitis called vertebral osteomyelitis. This is basically an infection within the bone marrow of vertebrae. Not only does it cause severe pain, if left unchecked it can result in necrosis, vertebral collapse, and further complications. Pyogenic spondylitis is a rare life-threatening neurological condition primarily affecting adults in their fifth decade of life. It encompasses a broad range of clinical entities, including pyogenic spondylodiscitis, septic discitis, vertebral osteomyelitis, and epidural abscess. (Figure 1.)
