Symptomatic benign vascular tumors of the bone are rare. Vertebral hemangiomas are rare detectable spinal tumors. Those presenting with neurological deficits are extremely rare. Early diagnosis and complete excision of the lesion with decompression of the cord is the definitive management in such cases.
