Abstract

T appropriate management of adults with filum lipoma (FL) with normal neurological status remains unclear.1,2 Factors such as younger age at presentation, low-lying conus medullaris (CM), thick FL, and the proximity of fat to the CM has not been consistent in the literature in predicting the development of neurological deficits.1-3 The objective of the… (More)
