Mayo Clinic, 4500 San Pablo Road, Jacksonville, FL, 32224, USA.

Spinal osseous neoplasms are frequently encountered and can be challenging when present as solitary lesions. Familiarity with the range of benign and malignant spinal pathology can help the radiologist formulate a comprehensive differential diagnosis. This article focuses on the spectrum of extradural spinal tumors, accounting for the majority of primary spinal tumors, by comparing the epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, and characteristic imaging appearance of these lesions.

Spinal Tumor Ablation: Indications, Techniques, and Clinical Management.

Tech Vasc Interv Radiol 2020 Jun 27;23(2):100677. Epub 2020 May 27.

Imagerie interventionnelle, Hôpitaux Universitaires de Strasbourg, Strasbourg Cedex, France.

Percutaneous thermal ablation has proven to be safe and effective in the management of patients with spinal tumors. Such treatment is currently proposed following the decision of a multidisciplinary tumor board to patients with small painful benign tumors such as osteoid osteoma or osteoblastoma, as well as carefully selected patients presenting with spinal metastases. In both scenarios, in order to provide a clinically effective procedure, ablation is often tailored to the specific patients' clinical needs and features of the target tumor. Read More

Bone Tumors: Benign Bone Tumors.

Authors:
Yee Lam

FP Essent 2020 Jun;493:11-21

UNC Department of Family Medicine, 590 Manning Drive, Chapel Hill, NC 27599.

Primary benign bone tumors are uncommon and most often affect children and young adults. They typically are detected incidentally on imaging, though some patients present with pain, swelling, or other symptoms. The four main categories of benign bone tumor are: bone-forming (eg, osteoid osteoma, osteoblastoma, fibrous dysplasia, enostosis), cartilage-forming (eg, osteochondroma, enchondroma), connective tissue, and vascular; the latter two are rare.

FOS Expression in Osteoid Osteoma and Osteoblastoma: A Valuable Ancillary Diagnostic Tool.

Am J Surg Pathol 2019 12;43(12):1661-1667

Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore.

Osteoblastoma and osteoid osteoma together are the most frequent benign bone-forming tumor, arbitrarily separated by size. In some instances, it can be difficult to differentiate osteoblastoma from osteosarcoma. Following our recent description of FOS gene rearrangement in these tumors, the aim of this study is to evaluate the value of immunohistochemistry in osteoid osteoma, osteoblastoma, and osteosarcoma for diagnostic purposes.
