Failed main neurulation permits invasion of mesenchymal tissue of mesodermic origin into the neural construction, resulting in the formation of a spinal lipoma. Regardless of most spinal lipomas being thought to be the results of failed main neurulation, some confusion by way of the embryogenesis of spinal lipomas stays. Lately, a novel classification of spinal lipomas primarily based on embryonic adjustments seen throughout main and secondary neurulation was has been proposed.
