Abstract

An unusual case of hemangioma involving three adjacent dorsal vertebrae with a clinical picture of progressive paraparesis is presented. Radiological verification of the lesion can be expected if possible, using plain X-Rays, tomography, CT scan and myelography. The roentgenographic appearances of vertebral hemangioma were characteristic, but only CT revealed the true extent of the disease. Reports of such a case have appeared infrequently in the literature. [Karshner 1936, Bailey 1955, Reeves 1964, Robbins 1958].
