Three cases of extrdural spinal agiolipomas of dorsal region presenting as compressive myelopathy are reported. All of them recovered fully following surgery. The role of modern imaging techniques in detecting such lesions along with review of literature is presented. Histopathology in case 2 showed areas suggestive of haemingioma and predominant areas of angiolipoma supporting the hypothesis of common origin of al these from the same pluripotential stem cells.
