The case of a 45 years old woman with lipoatrophia semicircularis is presented showing a typical semicircular depressions of the anterolateral aspects of the thighs. The lesion regressed after avoiding the pressing of the thighs against the desk edge. A PubMed search disclosed 125 cases of lipoatrophia semicircularis reported in details. More then 90% were middle aged women. Repeated external microtraumatisms was the most common cause. The few cases biopsied revealed a localized lipoatrophy. Avoiding microtraumatisms resulted in a complete remission of lipoatrophia semicircularis in most cases.
