Idiopathic Spinal Epidural Lipomatosis.

ABSTRACT
Spinal epidural lipomatosis, which causes symptomatic compression of neural elements, is a relatively uncommon disease. Although it has been reported frequently in association with the administration of exogenous steroids, a few cases of epidural lipomatosis with no association to exogenous steroids, have been reported. Idiopathic spinal epidural lipomatosis may be a separate disease from that induced by steroid. Here, the authors present two cases of symptomatic epidural lipomatosis with no history of steroid-dependent diseases and review the relevant literature.
Key Words: Lipomatosis; Epidural compression
