Vertebral bones are among the bones of osteoarticular system which are most often affected by secondary malignoma.
In the paper we present radiodiagnostical aspects of secondary malignoma in vertebral bones by conventional radiograms, and we illustrate and describe radiodiagnostic characteristics of the osteoplastic, osteolytic and osteolytic-osteoplastic metastasis.
Author conclude that the diagnosis of metastasis in vertebral bones is always important for TNM classification, and that their character often points to the primary locus of malignoma. Acta Medica Medianae 2003; 42 (2): 59-62.

Key words: vertebrogram, radiodiagnostic aspects, secondary malignoma
