Benign osteoblastic lesions are rare bone tumor and they are usually devided into osteoid osteoma & benign osteoblastoma based on their biological behavior. A benign osteoblastoma is prevalent in the spine, with the lamina and pedicle being involved frequently. Neurological abnormalities are more frequent in patients with osteoblastoma, which frequently extend into the neural canal. Relief of pain and neurological recovery is dependent primarily on the degree of tumor removal. We have experienced good result after excision of a benign osteoblastoma at the cervical spine in a 37-year-old patient.
