Phosphaturic mesenchymal tumor, mixed connective tissue variant (PMT-MCT) is a rare, largely benign, mesenchymal neoplasm almost invariably associated with oncogenic osteomalacia. It is generally found in the soft tissue and bone of the extremities. We report a case of a 61-year-old female with long-standing osteomalacia who was found to have PMT-MCT of the thoracic spine. There have been very few previously reported cases of PMT involving the spinal vertebrae and neuropathologists should be aware of this lesion. Recognition of PMT-MCT is critical for optimal patient care since complete surgical resection without additional therapy is curative.
