Spondylitis is an inflammation of the vertebra. It is a form of spondylopathy. In many cases spondylitis involves one or more vertebral joints as well, which itself is called spondylarthritis.
Pott's disease is a tuberculous disease of the vertebrae marked by stiffness of the vertebral column, pain on motion, tenderness on pressure, prominence of certain vertebral spines, and occasionally abdominal pain, abscess formation, and paralysis.
Ankylosing spondylitis is an autoimmune disease involving the spine and sacroiliac joints, and is therefore also a form of spondylarthritis.
A combination of spondylitis and inflammation of the intervertebral disc space is termed a spondylodiscitis.
