Abstract:   (824 Views)
Background and Importance: Plasmacytoma is more likely to involve the spine with up to 50%, most commonly in the thoracic spine.
Case Presentation: This study examined a patient with solitary plasmacytoma with neck pain and abnormal C1-C2 range of motion, which happened to have an osteolytic C2 lesion on CT scanning. The patient underwent a fluoroscopically guided anterior percutaneous C2 vertebroplasty without posterior fusion, leading to management of pain, maintenance of normal motions, and restoration of cervical alignment.
Conclusion: This case represents fluoroscopically guided anterior percutaneous C2 vertebroplasty as an effective treatment for C2 osteolytic lesions with an abnormal range of motion, which can be considered in selected cases as an alternative approach for demanding open surgical approaches to this challenging region.
