Figure 1

(a) Axial CT enhanced with intravenous contrast, mediastinal window. (b) Axial CT, pulmonary window. (c, d) Three-dimensional reconstruction using the CT of the chest (right ribs removed). Paraspinal oval mass in the lower thoracic spine measuring 20 mm in diameter. The capsule enhances slightly with contrast. The tumor is well-circumscribed without intraspinal extension. The callus formations in the posterior ribs (7th to 11th) can be observed, suggesting previous rib fractures (c, d; arrowheads).
