Sagittal T2-weighted image of the dorsal spine shows multiple vertebral bodies involved with the high signal infiltrative tumor. There is slight thinning of the cortices circumferentially but no evidence of vertebral body collapse or extension into the vertebral canal that might be an indication for surgical intervention or treatment with vertebroplasty with methyl methacrylate injection into the vertebral bodies. In this case, the treatment consisted of systemic chemotherapy as well as local radiation therapy to prevent the complications mentioned above. The pain should subside almost completely but if it is not relieved within four to six weeks, the use of spinal instrumentation should be considered.
