A 57-year-old woman complained of lumbago of 1 year's duration. Radiographs showed a compression fracture of the third lumbar vertebra. CT and MR images revealed an enhancing mass confined to the vertebral body suggestive of a malignant process. A blood-pool scintigram with 99mTc-human serum albumin combined with DTPA (HSA-D) revealed marked accumulation. This strongly suggested a hemangioma, which was confirmed by biopsy.
