MAYOR, M.; ARILLO, A.  y  TIBERIO, G.. Multiple symmetric lipomatosis: a case report. Anales Sis San Navarra [online]. 2006, vol.29, n.3, pp.433-437. ISSN 1137-6627.

We present the case of a 46 year-old man with Multiple Symmetric Lipomatosis (MSL), an infrequent disease with an unknown aetiology. MSL is characterized by multiple masses of adipose tissue and it is usually associated with alcoholism, metabolic disorders and neuropathy. We describe the clinical-morphological characteristics of the lesions it presents, the exploratory findings, cervical CAT, the analytical results and the results of subcutaneous biopsy. MSL type I disease was diagnosed. The treatment of choice, the lipectomy, was performed, making it possible to obtain a substantial disease improvement, both physical and aesthetically.

Palabras clave : Multiple symmetric lipomatosis; Madelung´s disease; Lipectomy.
