Abstract

Low back pain (LBP) is a very common complaint in pregnancy. For this reason, it is often considered directly attributable to the pregnancy rather than a medical problem requiring diagnostic workup. Pregnancy-related LBP should be differentiated from the rare cases of LBP associated with serious spinal diseases. Hemangioblastoma is a vascular tumor of the central nervous system that very rarely can involve the spinal cord. Pregnancy can increase the growth of hemangioblastomas, leading to the appearance of neurologic symptoms.
