A marked osteoporosis of the skeleton was found, it being easily possible to cut the vertebral bodies with a knife, the spongy part of the bone having largely disappeared. There was follicular atresia of the ovaries, marked lipomatosis of the pancreas , an increase of colloid in the abnormally small thyroid , hypoplasia of the thymus , and capillary

R enal transplants have become very common, and patients often require follow-up corticosteroid therapy for a long period of time. Corticosteroid therapy is well known to have some undesirable effects, including Cushing's syndrome and cutaneous or mediastinal lipomatosis. We are reporting the case of a patient presenting with spinal cord compression. At surgery an unusual amount of fat was found deposited in the extradural space. Such a localization suggests that there is a cause and effect relationship between the fat accumulation and the spinal cord

E xcessive deposition of normal fat in the lumbar epidural space is rare. In 1975, Lee, et al. , 6 described a patient with spinal cord compression produced by excessive extradural fat and, in 1980, Lipson, et al. , 7 reported compression of the cauda equina due to copious amounts of epidural fat. Both of these patients were suffering from Cushing's syndrome induced by prolonged high-dose (100 to 150 mg daily) steroid therapy. We present a patient with clinical signs and symptoms of cauda equina compression due to lumbar extradural lipomatosis, without

compression by a lipoma of the popliteal fossa; he was receiving chronic steroid therapy. After decompression by removal of the lipoma, his symptoms of sensory deficit, Tinel's sign, and foot-drop resolved. This is in accord with the literature which describes the excellent prognosis of patients with a compressive peroneal nerve palsy. This case appears to be another example of compression by lipomatosis or endogenous fat deposits under the influence of chronic steroid therapy; in this patient the peripheral nerves were affected.
