Sagittal T1-weighted image shows a large intradural extramedullary mass with a homogeneous hyperintense signal at T10/11, in close connection with the spinal cord.
Axial T2-weighted image shows the lesion demonstrating hyperintense signal. The spinal cord is displaced and flattened.
Features are typical of intradural spinal lipoma.
