The spine actually is surrounded by CSF (cerebalspinal fluid) In other words, fluid on the spine is really very normal. I know what you kind of mean though, the "disease" fluid on the spine, or water on the spine, usually relates to a herniated disc and has nothing to do with spinal fluid, but rather the soft tissue that should cushion each small bone in the spine from the next not doing it's job because of one disc rupturing, usually as a result of impact trauma.
