Abstract

This article discusses lesions that may present as vertebral tumors at radiologic examination. Conditions are discussed in order of decreasing frequency: pseudotumoral lesions, vertebral metastases, bone marrow diseases, and primary vertebral tumors, which are relatively uncommon. The differential diagnosis between nontraumatic benign and malignant vertebral collapses is also discussed.
