Primary Aneurysmal Bone cysts accout for 1.4 of all primary bone tumours and 15 of all primary spine tumours..ABCs are expansile cystic lesions and can be locally aggressive. ABCs of the dorsal spine can cause neurological complications and parasthesia. In this case report we present a 24 year old male patient with aneurysmal bone cyst of the third dorsal vertebra, with neurological deficit who was treated with open biopsy and posterior stabilisation(Stage1),selective arterial embolisation(stage 2),anterior decompression-intralesional excision of the tumour and fusion (stage 3) and radiotherapy (stage4). Neurological status fully recovered after radiotherapy
