The authors analysed 6 cases of lumbosacral tumors simulating lumbar disc diseases. Spine CT scan is the important diagnostic method for the investigation of lumbar disc diseases. But if the clinical feature is not correlated with lumbar CT scan, myelography must be performed to see any cauda equina tumor. At myelography, contrast medium should be run well up to the thoracic segments routinely, especially if no defect is found in the lumbar area.
Key Words: Lumbosacral; Tumors; Disc disease; Spine CT scan; Myelography
