Abstract

Spinal subpial lipoma is a rare entity and comprises only 0.9% of spinal cord tumours(l\ It arises from premature dysfunction of the cutaneous ectoderm during neural tube formation(2). We present a case of a 44-year-old male who presented with the symptoms attributed to this lesion, together with pathology, neuroimaging characteristics and management strategies
