Aneurysmal bone cyst is an uncommon spinal tumor of vascular origin and represents less than 1% primary bone tumors. A case of 15-year-old girl who presented with low back pain and severe left leg pain. The lesion was expansile in nature involving anterior and posterior bony elements of the spine. It also showed expanision into the intraspinal canal and paraspinal soft tissue. Surgical treatment consisted of tumor excision and pedicle screw fixation via extracavitary approach. Postoperative course was uneventful and her symptoms and signs were improved. Extracavitary approach, as applied to our case, seemed to be an ideal surgical method in such cases because of its nature and extent of involvement.
Key Words: Aneurysmal bone cyst; Spinal tumor; Extracavitary approach
