✓ Although spinal meningioma is a common benign neoplasm, the ossified variant is rare. No more than 20 sporadic cases were reported in the literature between 1977 and January 2005. Recently, the authors treated a patient with a symptomatic ossified meningioma located in the posterior aspect of T-11 and an associated osteoporotic T-11 burst fracture. The tumor was completely removed by T10–11 laminectomy and transpedicular vertebroplasty was performed. The kyphotic deformity of the T-11 burst fracture was partially reduced and maintained for at least 2 months after vertebroplasty and laminectomy. The clinical presentation and management of this case are reported.
