Abstract

Haemangiomas of the vertebrae, usually regarded as having little or no consequence, may display aggressive features, including extension into the extradural space, and cause significant neurological symptoms and signs necessitating treatment. Extraosseous haemangiomas in an extradural or intradural extramedullary location are a rare entity. Here we review our radiologic and pathologic experience of osseous haemangiomas with extradural extension and primary extradural and intradural extramedullary haemangiomas. Magnetic resonance imaging plays a pivotal role in the characterisation of spinal haemangiomas, with typical imaging features including T1 and T2 signal hyperintensity. Atypical and aggressive imaging features are also described. Spinal angiography may be required to differentiate haemangiomas from non-vascular lesions. This is a rare and unusual entity, and should be considered as a differential diagnosis for some extramedullary masses. • Osseous haemangiomas can display aggressive features and cause neurologic symptoms needing treatment. • Haemangioma extension into the extradural space is an imaging feature of aggressiveness. • Extraosseous haemangiomas are a rare but important differential diagnosis for extramedullary masses. • Extraosseous extramedullary haemangiomas most frequently present with progressive myelopathy. • MRI is pivitol in characterising spinal haemangiomas; imaging characteristics can vary.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 31 January 2016.
All research outputs
#3,519,775
of 7,066,845 outputs
Outputs from Insights Into Imaging
#94
of 214 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#167,256
of 320,226 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Insights Into Imaging
#3
of 10 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 7,066,845 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 28th percentile – i.e., 28% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 214 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.0. This one is in the 42nd percentile – i.e., 42% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 320,226 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 36th percentile – i.e., 36% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 10 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 7 of them.
