The authors report an unusual intradural subpial lipoma of the cervical spinal cord in a neurologically intact adolescent. The patient sought treatment for neck pain and had a history of previous trauma. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed the lesion. There are no reported cases of a subpial lipoma detected in the absence of any neurological deficits. A subtotal excision was performed, and pathological studies confirmed the diagnosis. Postoperatively, the patient remained neurologically intact.
