Presacral region is one of the difficult regions for drainage of abscess as the approaches described for this carry a lot of morbidities. Transpedicular approach is described for the drainage of presacral abscess. Further, tuberculous abscess as a cause of cauda equina syndrome is reported. Patient had complete neurological recovery within weeks of drainage of abscess. Transpedicular drainage of presacral abscess is a safer option for recently developed neurological deficit. Late presentation may need anterior approach, which is associated with increased morbidity.
