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. Delay in treatment may cause irreversible damage to the cord and may leave patient with lifelong neurological deficit. Here, we report a similar case of a thoracic vertebral hemangioma causing spinal cord compression in a child.
