A 72-year-old man presented with a very rare case of spinal dural arteriovenous fistula (AVF) with lipomyelodysplasia manifesting as progressive paraparesis and bladder dysfunction. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a spinal lipoma associated with tethered cord and spinal cord swelling with dilated perimedullary veins. Embolization of the spinal dural AVF was successfully performed, and is an optional treatment for coexisting spinal dural AVF and lipomyelocele in adults.
