  • Look Inside

The authors report the rare case of a 48-year-old woman with a cervical subpial lipoma unassociated with spinal dysraphlsm. Her symptoms were progressive weakness and numbness in the four extremities and the neurological symptom of mild cervical myelopathy. Plain radiographs of the cervical spine showed diffuse widening of the spinal canal, which was occupied by a large low-density mass revealed by axial CT scan. MR imaging identified the mass as being dorsolateral to the cord in the intradural region. It was hyperintense on both T1-and T2-weighted images.
