Figure 2: Illustration of potential routes of and barriers to spread of spinal sarcomas. Lesions, detached from the primary tumor are termed skip lesions. Barriers to skip lesions are: (A) Cortical bone, (B) pleura in cases when the lateral vertebral cortex has been breached, (C) muscle fascia in case of posterior cortical tumor breach, (D) dura in case of cortical breach of the spinal canal
