The authors present the management of a patient suffering from lumbar vertebral hemangioma. Percutaneous transpedicular acrylate vertebroplasty was performed. This method has widely been used for the treatment of pathological vertebral bodies of different aetiology. A brief review of the literature of previous and current methods is presented. A detailed discussion is given why vertebroplasty was used in contrast to the radiological investigation where the patient's hemangioma proved to be a non-aggressive type. According to the authors' knowledge this is the first Hungarian publication of acrylate vertebroplasty for the treatment of vertebral hemangioma.
