A 48 year-old male with back pain and foot drop had been treated. Studies for myelomatosis were all negative. A plain lumbar spin X-ray showed an erosion of the left pedicle of the first lumbar vertebra. A myelography via lumbar and cisternal routes revealed total block with feather appearance at the upper level of the L2 and the lower level of the T12 vertebra. Pathologic evaluation confirmed the diagnosis of solitary myeloma of the bone. After undergoing almost total excision, followed by radiation, the patient was still doing well.
