They can grow anywhere in the body where there are fat cells, but they are usually visible on the skin: they feel soft and "pitiful" to the touch and go from the pea size a few centimeters in diameter. They grow very slowly and usually cause no other problems. Sometimes, lipomas can grow deeper in the body, so you will not be able to see them or feel them. Lipomas are quite common, with about one in 100 people.
Lipomas are common benign mesenchymal tumors. They can develop in virtually every organ of the body. The anatomy depends on the site of the tumor. Subcutaneous lipomas are usually not fixed to the underlying aponeurosis. The fibrous capsule must be removed to avoid any recurrence. In the gastrointestinal tract, lipomas are presented as submucosal fat tumors. The most common places include the esophagus, stomach, and small intestine. Symptoms manifest as obstruction or bleeding. Colonic lipomas are usually found at endoscopy. Gentle palpation with a biopsy forceps reveals the soft nature of the submucosal mass.
The T1-weighted hyperintensity (Figure, A-D) and the intensity of the intermediate signal on the T2-weighted images suggested a tissue specificity.c diagnosis of lipoma of the trigeminal nerve. The patient refused surgery and the follow-up MRI 1 year later showed no interval changes in the morphology and extension of the lesion. The T1 coronal images show a homogenous hyperintense lesion involving the right trigeminal nerve root (white arrows) in A and B and the Meckel (white arrow) C cavern relative to the normal left trigeminal nerve. (black arrows) and Meckel's cave (yellow arrow).
Multiple familial lipomatosis is a rare genetic disease characterized by by the formation of multiple benign masses or adipose tissue growths (lipomas). often affect the arms and legs (extremities). The size and number of lipomas vary from case to case. Some people can develop hundreds of small lipomas that do not cause symptoms (asymptomatic). Unlike Dercum's disease, lipomas do not cause pain. The neck and shoulders are generally not affected.
Long term to understand the natural history of malformation. Seven cases of pericellular fetal lipoma were collected in three hospitals in France and Belgium for a period of 10 years (1990-1999). Case analysis included in uterine and postnatal imaging and neurological assessment at birth and follow-up. All in utero echographic results have been reviewed, including gestational age at diagnosis, height, morphological type (as described by Truwit and Barkovitch 6), and lipoma localization, and related abnormalities.
