Abstract

Objective: Pediatric vertebral tumors are rare, and most of the reported series have limited numbers of cases. Diagnosis of these tumors is difficult because of the patients' age and the rarity of the lesions. We aimed to report the clinical, radiological and pathological characteristics in a small series of pediatric vertebral and spinal epidural tumors and to discuss diagnostic and treatment difficulties.
