Abstract

A series of five cases of sacral aneurysmal bone cyst is presented. There were three females and two males, the youngest patient being 11 years old, the oldest 41 years old. All patients had pain of long duration with varying signs of nerve root compression. Three patients had micturitional problems. Four patients had a palpable mass which was tender. All had standard radiographs. Tomograms, computed tomography (CT) scans or MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) were obtained in some patients. In all patients a definite histologic diagnosis was established. Four lesions healed after resection (two cases) or curettage (two cases). One patient is considered to have a stable lesion which is not progressing.
