If approved, the CCH could become the first FDA approved treatment for lipoma treatment, providing a safe and effective alternative to surgery. In June 2016, BioSpecifics reported positive, statistically significant results from its double-blind, placebo-controlled, placebo-controlled trial of collagenase clostridium hystolyticum (CCH) for lipoma treatment. human. The trial achieved its primary objective of reducing the visible area of target lipomas relative to placebo, as determined by thickness, six months after injection (p).
This test is done to rule out the possibility of cancer. Although a lipoma is not cancerous, it may look like a malignant or cancerous liposarcoma. Unlike lipomas, liposarcomas are painful and develop rapidly under the skin. Other tests using MRI and computed tomography are only necessary if a biopsy shows that a suspicious lipoma is actually a liposarcoma. A lipoma that is left alone does not usually cause any problemsems.

Conclusion: Obstetric ultrasound is able to easily show a pericallosal lipoma. Fetal MRI may be useful for characterizing lipomatous nature and lipoma extension and the condition of the corpus callosum. Long-term follow-up is necessary to understand the clinical consequences of such lesions. The pericallosal lipoma is a rare CNS abnormality found in one of 2,500 at one of 25,000 autopsies.
B, MR image fetal. The rapid sagittal echo-spin T2 weighted sequence (8000/122/2) shows a curvilinear hyposignal lipoma and a normal corpus callosum. A follow-up MRI was also performed in patients 2 and 3 aged 9 and 3 years respectively. In both cases, the lipoma had increased in volume and in extension. In both cases, less sulci were visible next to the lipoma and the cortical coat appeared thicker. These features have increased on the following control images (Fig 1B - E).
