Madelung’s disease, also known as symmetric multi adenolipomatosi (MSL), is a rare disease of unknown etiology with a higher incidence in the Mediterranean area, characterized by multiple subcutaneous lipid deposits non-enveloped, associated with neurological disorders. Madelung’s disease mostly affects male subjects, genetically predisposed, and sees chronic alcoholism as the main risk factor. We describe the case of a 65-year-old man with ant history of chronic alcoholism, arrived at the A. Cardarelli Hospital in Campobasso to a hypo. On examination, the patient had several bumps in the neck and upper back, and neurological deficits.


KEY WORDS: Lipomatosis, multiple symmetrical; Nervous system diseases; Causality
