Oncologic and orthopaedics results of surgical treatment of 32 patients with benign tumors of the thoracic and lumbar spine were analyzed. Tumors were manifested by the following nosologic forms: hemangioma, giant cell tumor, osteoid osteoma, osteoblastoma. Follow up period was from 2 to 16 years, at the time of results evaluation all patients were alive.
