Spinal epidural lipomatosis is a rare disease. Its main characteristic is pathological hypertrophy of adipose tissue in the epidural space, which depending on its size leads to different severity of compression of the structures in the spinal canal. We present a case with the characteristic features of the disease detected at MRI assessment.
