The authors report the method used and the results obtained in 42 vertebral needle biopsies with CT scan monitoring. Material sufficient for a positive histological diagnosis was obtained in 67% of the cases. Indications for the use of this method are conditioned by a suitable clinical and instrumental evaluation, and limited to cases where a histological monomorphous lesion or when en bloc resection are predicted. The need to follow precise rules in terms of technique and manual skill is emphasized.
