Case History: 8-year-old male presented with neck pain and right upper limb weakness for two months.
Figure 1. Sagittal T1WI showed intradural extramedullary oval-shaped, well-defined hyperintense mass indenting the posterior aspect of the spinal cord extends from C2 to D1 level.
Figure 6. Sagittal DWI showed decreased diffusivity of the mass, its ADC at (b=1000) was 0.43x10â3 mm2/s.
The more common lipomatous malformations, associated with spinal dysraphism have been extensively reviewed in the literature.
Lipoma pathogenesis could be a result of a developmental error, in which lipoma can arise from inclusions of embryonic rests, within the meninges during the formation of the neural tube.
