Spinal Epidural Lipomatosis Picture
Spinal Epidural Lipomatosis is a rare condition that is most often
caused by long term steroid use. It is an enlarging of the fatty

begins to put pressure on the spinal canal and the nerves that run
through it. In the picture below once you click it the left is the
