Özet

Angiolipoma is a benign tumor composed of mature adipocytes admixed with vascular elements. This article presents a case of spinal extradural angiolipoma in 52-year-old man, who underwent surgical treatment with preoperational diagnosis of schwannoma. This rare clinical entity must be considered in the differential diagnosis for any spinal epidural lesion.
