Osseous hemangiomas are usually asymptomatic. Symptomatic hemangiomas are rare and represent approximately 1% of all cases. Hemangiomas usually present as photopenic defects in methylene diphosphonate (MDP) bone scintigraphy. MDP uptake in vertebral hemangiomas is extremely rare. We report a 20-year-old woman who presented with upper back pain. MDP bone scan showed focus of MDP uptake in the seventh dorsal vertebra. SPECT/CT localized the uptake to vertebral body and transverse process with CT findings suggestive of hemangioma. Further, MRI also confirmed hemangioma in the same location.
