Abstract
Gorham’s disease is a rare musculoskeletal disease of unknown etiology characterized by progressive osteolysis and massive bone destruction. Here, we report an extremely rare case of Gorham’s disease involving two far sites in the lumbar spine and trochanteric region, gradually resulting in paraplegia. The patient underwent cord decompression and chemotherapy, and resumed her normal life; she was followed up for nearly five years.
