The reports of epidural vascular tumors are rare however dumbbell-shaped epidural cavernous hemangioma is exceedingly rare. The reported incidence of epidural hemangiom is 4%of all spinal epidural tumors and 12% of all intraspinal hemangioma. In the majority of cases, hemangiomas of spinal epidural space represent the secondary extension of a vertebral hemangioma but the occurance of pure epidural cavernous hemangioma is relatively rare. In this report, authors present two cases of epidural cavernous hemangioma including one dembbell-shaped in the thoracic spine with review of other reports.
Key Words: Vascular tumor; Dumbbell-shaped tumor; Cavernous hemangioma; Vertebral hemangioma
