ABSTRACT
Extradural lipomas have been frequently reported in the literature, but intramedullary lipomas are far rarer, constituting only approximately 2% of total intramedullary tumors. Intramedullary lipomas are also commonly associated with spinal dysraphism. Lipomas which are not associated with spinal dysraphism are present in only about 1% of spinal lipoma patients. Here, we report a rare case of a patient suffering from an isolated intramedullary lipoma without evidence of spinal dysraphism.
Key Words: Lipoma; Intramedullary cord tumor
