Intradural spinal lipoma is a rare benign tumor in the spinal cord and a case of intradural lipoma in the lower thoracic region is presented. In our case, subtotal resection was done due to the severe fibrous adhesion to surrounding neural tissue. We conclude that the role of surgery in intradural spinal lipoma should be a decompressive procedure to stop the progression of neurological deficit.
