Hemangioma of the vertebrae: contribution of magnetic resonance to its study



Hemangioma of the vertebrae: contribution of magnetic resonance to its study



Neurologia 4(9): 336-339



Vertebral hemangioma is a benign vascular tumor predominantly involving the dorsolumbar spine. Although most of these tumors are asymptomatic, they may result in radiculopathy and/or compressive myelopathy. Plain X-ray films and computed tomography (CT) generally permit the diagnosis by showing characteristic images with hypertrophic bone trabeculation in the vertebral body. We report three patients with vertebral hemangioma in which CT was diagnostic. Magnetic resonance (MR) with low intensity field was inferior to CT for the suggestion of the diagnosis of hemangioma, but had a better definition for subarachnoid space obliteration and spinal cord compression.
