Abstract

Accounting for approximately 1-2% of all bone tumors, chondroblastoma is a benign bone tumor that is locally aggressive too typically affects the epiphyses or apophyses of long bones. Less commonly affected sites include the talus and calcaneus of the foot and flat bones.Vertebral involvement by chondroblastoma is very rare, with advance pubmed search we could find only 30 cases, reported in literature of vertebral chondroblastoma.We are presenting one such rare case with review of available literature to evaluate clinical radiological and pathological characteristics of vertebral chondroblastoma.
