Abstract
Pars defect and spondylolisthesis are frequent conditions, while bone tumors-particularly the primaries-are rare. The contemporary occurrence can delay the diagnosis of the tumor, if symptoms are considered related to spondylolisthesis, or can make reconstruction more demanding. To our knowledge, only two case reports of this contemporary occurrence have been published in the literature. Being such rare, guidelines on surgical treatment have not been proposed yet.
