Through the study of a case of spinal aneurysmal bone cyst managed in the Department of Neurosurgery at Hassan II University Hospital of Fez we focus our discussion of various aspects of this rare disease. Our study concerns a male patient admitted to the emergency department for spinal cord compression that necessitated a spinal MRI. It showed T4 vertebral compression, hypointense T1, hyperintense T2 with hematic fluid levels causing spinal cord compression. The patient underwent surgical treatment with good clinical outcome. Histological study revealed a spinal aneurysmal bone cyst.
