Two individuals of the Nigrovits family from the Vác Mummy Collection of the Hungarian Natural History Museum were the subjects of multidisciplinary, anthropological, paleopathological, radiological, paleomicrobiological and paleoproteomic studies. The father, József Nigrovits (No 29), died at the age of 55 on the 11th of November 1793; his son, Antal Nigrovits (No 54), died on the 16th of July 1803, at the age of 22. They lived in the 18th century in a small town of northern Hungary. The macroscopic examination of body No 54 showed a severely deformed neck and back region; body No 29 had no characteristic marks of any illnesses. The CT scan data of the bodies and their 3D reconstructions showed no skeletal evidence of tuberculosis, despite the positive results of their paleomicrobiological studies. The deformity of body No 54 turned to be a developmental abnormality of unknown origin, but no Pott’s gibbus was present.
