Musculoskeletal pains are secondary complication of a my apathic disorder but other causes must be ruled out through meticulous evaluation. We report a case of distal my apathy who developed back pain due to tuberculous spondylitis but was overlooked and his complaint of backache was considered outcome of mechanical deterioration of vertebral column resulting from weakness of para spinal muscles due to my apathy. After detailed evaluation, his unnoticed ailment was identified and he was started off with the right management.
