Spinal Epidural Lipomatosis
Spinal Epidural Lipomatosis is a rare and complex disorder that can present with progressive neurological deficits. Hypertrophy of adipose tissue located in the spinal epidural space is most commonly associated with long-term steroid use but can be observed in patients with a number of other conditions. As the adipose tissue expands, it encroaches on spinal canal and compresses the neural elements. If conservative management is unsuccessful, surgery with decompressive laminectomy is very successful too at improving the patient’s neurological symptoms. But it is thought to get rid of Spinal Epidural Lipomatosis because it is a disease that can’t be fully cured.
