Some cases of lipoma have been found in association with Goldenhar syndrome and trisomy 13, 15, 18 and 21 (3, 14, 15). As a result, chromosome analysis is mandatory in utero. The pericallosal lipoma has a typical in utero echographic profile. Tubulo-nodular diagnosis is easier than curvilinear diagnosis. Fetal MRI can help evaluate associated abnormalities, especially the frequent callosal anomaly.
They are usually soft, with limited mobility under the skin. The overlying skin is usually not affected. Over time, they can get fat and wiggle the movement if they are located between the legs or down on the chest. Most dogs that develop a lipoma will develop multiple tumors. But, it is important to recognize that the extra masses do not necessarily indicate malignancy or metastasis.Since other skin masses may appear similar to lipomas, it is recommended to check each mass individually.
The patient had painful shoulder movement that could have been attributed to rotator cuff and acromioclavicular joint disease. However, magnetic resonance imaging and electromyography were compatible with trapping of the suprascapular nerve. The treatment of rotator cuff disease and excision of the lipoma led to the resolution of the patient's symptoms. This case is presented as an unusual cause of suprascapular nerve entrapment with a review of its course and anatomy.
They occur mostly on the neck, trunk and extremities, but can occur anywhere on the body. Lipomas are composed of fat cells that have the same morphology as normal fat cells, and there is a framework of connective tissue. Angiolipomas have a vascular component and can beEnder at cold room temperature. These often require excision, while other lipomas should be excised only when they are considered as disfiguring.
Large, rubbery lipomas are usually solitary. 60% are associated with an identifiable chromosomal abnormality, while patients with multiple small lipomas on the chest, arms, and legs often have family history and there are no chromosomal changes. Under the microscope, lipoma cells resemble ordinary fat cells. They may have a thin capsule around them, which the surgeon will try to dissolve without the skin and surrounding tissues to try to pull out all the lipoma cells.
This patient came with the complaint of swelling on thigh. It was diagnosed as a lipoma. The large mass was excised.
