Özet

Amyloidoma is a nodular mass of amyloid with 110 evidence of generalized amyloidosis. Primary amyloidoma of the spine is very rare and has a predilection for the thoracic region. The tumor-like appearance and behavior make it difficult to diagnose oil imaging Studies. Despite its rarity and nonspecific radiologic findings, primary spinal amyloidoma should be included in the differential diagnosis of an osteolytic and calcified mass of the spine. We report the case of a 38-year-old woman with amyloidoma involving the thoracic spine and describe the main characteristics of this condition.
