Lipomyelomeningocele (LMMC) is a closed neural tube defect in which neural elements are incorporated into a spinal lipoma. This is an uncommon defect, occurring in 3–6 patients per 100,000 live births. Clinical decision-making regarding treatment is complicated by the varied pathology and the spectrum of presentations.
