PMID:  8934025     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A rare case of vertebral eosinophilic granuloma (C4) causing spinal cord compression is reported. The clinical, histological and radiological features of this pathological entity are discussed. After surgery a complete neurological recovery was observed. The value, in selected cases, of surgical treatment with total removal of the tumour and reconstruction of the spine to ensure spinal stability and to prevent irreversible neurological deficit is emphasized.
