ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Epidural Lipomatosis

History: 76 y.o. man presents with back pain and hyperreflexia in the lower extremities. MRI of brain showed no focal abnormalities.

Findings: MRI of the spine demonstrates proliferation of the dorsal epidural fat associated with complete effacement of the dorsal sub arachnoid space from the T3 - T9 levels which results in moderate central canal stenosis mild ventral cord flattening at the T6-7 level. There is also multilevel disk disease.

Ddx: • epidural lipomatosis • epidural spread of liposarcoma • extradural lipoma

Dxhow: MRI imaging

Exam: +3 hyperreflexia of the lower extremities

No MeSH data available.


T2 weighted image shows proliferation of the dorsal epidural fat that is of intermediate signal intensity and a tiny high signal rim of CSF.  There is moderate ventral cord flattening and a associated mild disc protrusion.
