Hemangioma is a benign tumor characterized by the proliferation of blood vessels. A few hemangiomas are aggressive, characterized by bone expansion and extra-osseous extension. The vertebral hemangiomas are most often found in the thoracic and lumbar spine. The aggressive type refers to the presence of extension beyond the vertebral body, destruction of the cortex and invasion of the epidural and paravertebral spaces. An aggressive hemangioma can occur at any age with peak prevalence in young adults. We hereby present a case of an Aggressive Hemangioma in a young patient with no co-morbidities exhibiting symptoms of low backache and progressive lower limb weakness and urinary symptoms.
