Author information

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Osaka Prefectural Hospital, Japan.


The current report describes a case of extradural angiolipoma with spinal cord compression that was studied by magnetic resonance imaging. In considering the strategy for the surgical management, it is desirable to determine the histologic type of spinal cord tumors before the operation. The literature of spinal angiolipoma is reviewed, and the possibility of using magnetic resonance imaging to define the histologic type of spinal cord tumors before operation is discussed.
