Because ultrasound is highly sensitive, specific and reliable4,5 when necessary in developing countries. We recommend that ultrasound be the radiological examination of choice because it is less expensive and relatively more available in such contexts. Computed tomography and MRI are useful for evaluating the anatomical extensions of vulvar lipomas and differentiating them from liposarcomas1.
The results of the MRI were the diagnosis of a benign lipoma. The patient chose not to undergo a surgical resection of the mass. A follow-up MRI performed 10 months later showed that the mass was unchanged in size and shape (Figure 6â € ¡). Cardiac lipomas are benign tumors of mature fat cells encapsulated. They are frequently sub-endocardial and account for about 11% of all cardiac neovasms1. The characteristics of the MR signal are quite specific and allow the cardiac MRI to be diagnosed in this case.
Bignin Tumors of the vulva are generally classified according to their origin in epithelial or mesenchymal tumors.2 Vulvar lipomas are rare benign mesenchymal tumors consisting of mature fat cells. , often interspersed with strands of fibrous connective tissue.2,4 From vulvar fats they appear as subcutaneous soft and multiloculated nephrases4. They have been identified in various age groups from infancy to ninth decade.
In severe cases, the pain can worsen with movement. The exact reason for the pain associated with Dercum's disease is unknown, but can occur because lipomas press on the neighboring nerves. Lipomas can be found in any part of the body, although they are rare in the head and neck. The trunk, arms and upper legs are most commonly affected. Some people with Dercum can experience swelling of various areas of the body, especially the hands. Swelling occurs for no apparent reason and often goes away without treatment. Significant weight gain is a common occurrence for most individuals affected by Dercum disease.
Popaholics, I’d fast forward to the 5:50 mark and watch from there. For those trying to learn this procedure I apologize that I lost the first part of this video as that detailed the real…
