The progressively expanding periosteum may lay down a series of thin ossified shells in an attempt to respond to this injury, resulting in soft tissue calcifications. These tumors may also locate portals of egress unprotected by periosteum. When a tumor extends through the primary nutrient foramen at the midpoint of the dorsal vertebral cortex, the thin posterior longitudinal ligament is the only structure to retard its expansion.
