    Madelung's disease (benign symmetric lipomatosis) is a rare syndrome in which there are multiple lipomas around the neck, upper limbs and trunk in the context of chronic alcoholism. We report on a female patient with lipomas and slightly progressive myoclonus, neuropathy, myopathy, ataxia and respiratory systemic involvement (labelled in the past as Madelung's disease). Multisystem involvement and family history of lipomas led to the development of mitochondrial genetic tests, which can assess two concurrent mitochondrial mutations: the m. Read More

    Lipoblasts in Spindle Cell and Pleomorphic Lipomas: a Close Scrutiny.
    Hum Pathol 2017 May 22. Epub 2017 May 22.
    Department of Pathology, Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen, Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic.
    The presence and frequency of lipoblasts (LPB) in spindle cell lipomas (SCL) and pleomorphic lipomas (PL) has never been studied in detail on histologically, immunohistochemically and molecular genetically validated set of tumors. The authors investigated this feature by reviewing 91 cases of SCL and 38 PL. When more than three unequivocal LPB were found, the case was regarded as positive for the presence of LPB. Read More

    A unique case of massive gastrointestinal bleeding.
    SAGE Open Med Case Rep 2017 17;5:2050313X17700345. Epub 2017 Mar 17.
    Department of Internal Medicine, Toyama Prefectural Central Hospital, Toyama City, Japan.
    Objectives: Lipomas are the second most common benign tumors of the small bowel, and most lipomas are asymptomatic. However, lipomas with diameters of >20 mm tend to be symptomatic, for example, to cause bleeding, obstructive jaundice, abdominal pain, intestinal obstruction, intussusception, and/or perforation.

    Methods/results: We report a case of massive gastrointestinal bleeding from a jejunal lipoma combined with intussusception. Read More

    Neck and Occipital Pain Caused by Deep Cervical Intramuscular Lipoma: A Surgical Case.
    J Nippon Med Sch 2017 ;84(2):96-99
    Department of Neurological Surgery, Nippon Medical School.
    A lipoma is a slow-growing, benign tumor and is usually asymptomatic; hence, surgical intervention can often be avoided in patients with these tumors in the cervical and cranial area. Lipomas arise most commonly in the subcutaneous fat, but occasionally in muscle tissue. Intramuscular lipomas in the cervico-cranial area have rarely been reported. Read More

An exhaustive literature review could reveal only 12 cases of angiomyxolipoma affecting subcutaneous tissue, subungual area and spermatic cord. In oral cavity, only 2 cases of angiomyxolipoma have been reported to date, one case in the buccal mucosa and one case in the floor of the mouth. Read More

    Incidentally discovered well-differentiated retroperitoneal liposarcoma with inguinal canal herniation: report of 2 cases.
    Radiol Case Rep 2017 Jun 8;12(2):308-312. Epub 2017 Apr 8.
    Department of Radiology, Tor Vergata Polyclinic, Viale Oxford 81, 00100 Rome, Italy.
    Well-differentiated retroperitoneal liposarcomas are slow growing and low-grade tumors, reaching usually huge size before being symptomatic and so diagnosed, therefore with increase of the surgical risk and of the probability of dedifferentiation. Inguinal location of these tumors is unusual and rarely diagnosed. Read More

    An adult horse was diagnosed with a frontal and caudal maxillary sinus lipoma, which was surgically removed. This is the first known report of a sinus lipoma in a horse. Lipomas should be considered in the differential diagnoses of equine sinus masses; complete surgical excision appears to be curative. Read More

    Imaging of fatty tumors: appearance of subcutaneous lipomas in optoacoustic images.
    J Biophotonics 2017 May 9. Epub 2017 May 9.
    Institute for Biological and Medical Imaging, Technische Universität München and Helmholtz Zentrum München, Ingoldstädter Landstraße 1, D-, 85764, Neuherberg, Germany.
    A wide variety of subcutaneous soft-tissue masses may be seen in clinical practice. Clinical examination based on palpation alone is often insufficient to identify the nature and exact origin of the mass, in which case imaging is necessary. We used handheld multispectral optoacoustic imaging technology (MSOT) in a proof-of-principle study to image superficial fatty tumors and compare the images with diagnostic ultrasound. Read More
