Lipomas are benign tumours which are frequently seen, however there is no specific mention regarding the incidence of lumbar lipomas. Literature does not describe challenges of anaesthesia technique in patients with lumbar lipomas without neuro deficit. An ultrasound examination of the spine using a low frequency probe contributes to screening for the path for passage of the needle.
