Dercum's disease (adiposis dolorosa): a review of clinical presentation and management.

Reumatologia 2019 31;57(5):281-287. Epub 2019 Oct 31.

Department of Internal Medicine, Rheumatology and Clinical Immunology, Medical University of Silesia, Katowice, Poland.

Dercum's disease (adiposis dolorosa) is a rare disease of unknown etiology characterized by painful subcutaneous adipose tissue deposits with various localization over the body. The deposits occur histologically as lipomas and are associated with overweight or obesity and a variety of psychiatric disturbances (anxiety, depression, sleep disturbances). Classification of Dercum's disease is related to size and location of adipose nodules (generalized diffuse, generalized nodular, localized nodular and juxta-articular forms). Read More

Lipedema and Dercum's Disease: A New Application of Bioimpedance.

Lymphat Res Biol 2019 12 13;17(6):671-679. Epub 2019 Aug 13.

TREAT Program, College of Medicine, University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona.

Lipedema and Dercum's disease (DD) are incompletely characterized adipose tissue diseases, and objective measures of disease profiles are needed to aid in differential diagnosis. We hypothesized that fluid properties, quantified as tissue water bioimpedance in the upper and lower extremities, differ regionally between these conditions. Women (cumulative  = 156) with lipedema ( = 110), DD ( = 25), or without an adipose disease matched for age and body mass index to early stage lipedema patients (i. Read More

Lipomatoses.

J Dtsch Dermatol Ges 2018 Mar 12;16(3):313-327. Epub 2018 Feb 12.

Department of Dermatology, Venerology and Allergology, University Medical Center, Göttingen, Germany.

Lipomatoses are benign proliferations of adipose tissue, often with typical distribution patterns, which usually occur without clear causes. In contrast to circumscribed lipomas, they develop diffusely and symmetrically and are not surrounded by a fibrous pseudocapsule. The most common form is benign symmetric lipomatosis (BSL; Launois-Bensaude syndrome), of which four types are distinguished based on the distribution pattern of hyperplastic adipose tissue.

Clin Dermatol 2018 Jan - Feb;36(1):81-88. Epub 2017 Sep 8.

Department of Dermatology, Istanbul Medeniyet University School of Medicine, Istanbul, Turkey.

The cutaneous manifestations of obesity and the associated metabolic syndrome (MetS) may present with a wide variety of cutaneous findings, including acanthosis nigricans, acrochordon, cellulitis, psoriasis, hidradenitis suppurativa, acne, and hirsutism. Being aware of such clinical signs and the underlying systemic disorders may facilitate earlier diagnoses, thereby permitting earlier of therapy initiation and prevention of long-term sequelae. In this process, dermatologists are key figures in the early detection of MetS and its clinical manifestations. Read More

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, Mo.; and Department of Medicine, University of Arizona, Banner University Medical Center, Tucson, Ariz.

Lipedema, or adiposis dolorosa, is a common adipose tissue disorder that is believed to affect nearly 11% of adult women worldwide. It is characterized most commonly by disproportionate adipocyte hypertrophy of the lower extremities, significant tenderness to palpation, and a failure to respond to extreme weight loss modalities. Women with lipedema report a rapid growth of the lipedema subcutaneous adipose tissue in the setting of stress, surgery, and/or hormonal changes. Read More

The spectrum of adipose tissue diseases ranges from obesity to lipodystrophy, and is accompanied by insulin resistance syndrome, which promotes the occurrence of type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemia and cardiovascular complications. Lipodystrophy refers to a group of rare diseases characterized by the generalized or partial absence of adipose tissue, and occurs with or without hypertrophy of adipose tissue in other sites. They are classified as being familial or acquired, and generalized or partial. Read More

The associated symptoms in Dercum's disease include fatty deposits, easy bruisability, sleep disturbances, impaired memory, depression, difficulty concentrating, anxiety, rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, diabetes, bloating, constipation, fatigue, weakness and joint aches.

Classification: We suggest that Dercum's disease is classified into: I. Read More

Thermal and vibratory thresholds after liposuction in patients with Dercum's disease.

J Plast Surg Hand Surg 2011 Apr;45(2):72-6

Department of Clinical Sciences in Malmö, Lund University, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Skåne University Hospital, Malmö, Sweden.

Dercum's disease is characterised by pronounced pain in the adipose tissue and a number of associated symptoms and is, in most patients, accompanied by obesity. Postoperative sensory change after liposuction is a well-known side effect, and probably caused by mechanical trauma to the nerves. The aim of this investigation was to find out whether the thermal and sensory sensation changed after liposuction in patients with Dercum's disease. Read More

Liposuction may reduce pain in Dercum's disease (adiposis dolorosa).

Pain Med 2011 Jun 11;12(6):942-52. Epub 2011 Apr 11.

Department of Clinical Sciences, Malmö, Lund University, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Skåne University Hospital, Malmö, Sweden.

Objective: The aim of this prospective study is to assess the effect of liposuction on the pain experienced by women with Dercum's disease (adiposis dolorosa).

Design: Pain was examined preoperatively and at 3 months, and 1, 2, 3, and 5 years after liposuction. The subjective pain sensation was evaluated with a visual analog scale and number of words chosen, and the objective pain sensation with the mechanical pressure pain threshold. Read More

Pilot study: rapidly cycling hypobaric pressure improves pain after 5 days in adiposis dolorosa.

J Pain Res 2010 Aug 20;3:147-53. Epub 2010 Aug 20.

Department of Medicine, University of California, San Diego, California, USA;

Adiposis dolorosa (AD) is a rare disorder of painful nodular subcutaneous fat accompanied by fatigue, difficulty with weight loss, inflammation, increased fluid in adipose tissue (lipedema and lymphedema), and hyperalgesia. Sequential compression relieves lymphedema pain; we therefore hypothesized that whole body cyclic pneumatic hypobaric compression may relieve pain in AD. To avoid exacerbating hyperalgesia, we utilized a touch-free method, which is delivered via a high-performance altitude simulator, the Cyclic Variations in Altitude Conditioning™ (CVAC™) process.

[Fatter through lipids or water. Lipohyperplasia dolorosa versus lymphedema].

Authors:
M E Cornely

Hautarzt 2010 Oct;61(10):873-9

Lipohyperplasia dolorosa and lymphedema are completely different disease entities, which are both, however, classified under lymphology. While in lipohyperplasia dolorosa a congenital lipid distribution disorder leads to a high volume insufficiency and the corresponding clinical symptoms, lymphedema is characterized by a congenital transport incompetence of the vessels or acquired disorders of transport capacity. Both lymphedemas of different genesis are familial volume alterations of the affected regions and the increase in volume is irreversible if not exclusively still in stage I or II. Read More
