|Epidural spinal myelolipoma was diagnosed in a 13-year-old, male Siberian husky that was referred for evaluation of progressive pelvic limb paresis and urinary incontinence.
An epidural mass was detected by magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography.
The mass was removed and identified histopathologically as an epidural myelolipoma.
Pelvic limb paresis improved after surgery, but urinary retention associated with neurological bladder dysfunction persisted.
