Abstract

Osteoblastoma is a rare bone tumour. It is occasionally associated with an aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC). Several treatment strategies can be adopted. We report a challenging case of an osteoblastoma associated with ABC of the lumbar spine in a 2-year-old boy. The pathogenesis and the critical management of the disease are discussed.
