Abstract

We describe a very unusual vertebral hemangioma presenting with a mixture of aggressive-like pattern (epidural extension , T1 hyposignal) and quiescent, inactive lesion (fatty infiltration), in association with a spiculated calcified epidural component. This paper emphasizes that CT and/or MR findings are accurate enough to make formal assessment of vertebral hemangioma, preventing patient’s anguish and moreover unnecessary treatment. Furthermore this attractive case proposes a poorly known characteristic of vertebral hemangioma which is usually encountered and described only in skull hemangiomas.
