Symmetric multiple lipomatosis. A case report with an unusual onset

Ciambelli F., Limbiati S., Mattaini R., Mozzana R.


PDF


The authors report a case of symmetric multiple lipomatosis in a young woman with chronic liver disease caused by previous alcohol abuse whose onset occured three years after the suspension of the toxic agent. The introduction includes a review of the latest literature, focusing in particular on the most probable etiopathogenetic causes, the most common clinical presentations and therapuetic choices. After a description of this particular case, the authors discuss the unusual presentation of the syndrome caused by the rapid onset of lipid accumulation a long time after the suspension of alcohol abuse.
