1/389. Pelvic lipomatosis.

    A case report of pelvic lipomatosis in a woman is presented. This condition is a benign, apparently self-limited disease in which mature adipose tissue is deposited in the pelvis. The clinical presentation is discussed. ( info)

2/389. Diffuse lipomatosis of thyroid gland.

    A case of diffuse lipomatosis of the thyroid gland is presented. Previously documented cases of this rare disorder are reviewed. Diffuse lipomatosis of the thyroid, amyloid goiter with adipose tissue, and the relationship between lipomatosis and adenolipoma are discussed. ( info)

3/389. Pelvic lipomatosis associated with proliferative cystitis: case report and review of the Japanese literature.

    PURPOSE: We report only the second known patient with pelvic lipomatosis associated with proliferative cystitis in the Japanese literature, a 43-year-old mildly obese Japanese male who demonstrated radiographic findings characteristic of pelvic lipomatosis. methods: Cystourethrography revealed an elevated pear-shaped bladder and an elongated and anteriorly displaced prostatic urethra. Computed tomography demonstrated excess intrapelvic fat that exhibited a density identical to that of subcutaneous fat tissue. Cystoscopic and histologic examination revealed concomitant proliferative cystitis composed of von Brunn's nest, cystitis cystica and cystitis glandularis, but no malignant cells. RESULTS/CONCLUSIONS: As a result of dietary control for 15 months, the proliferative cystitis improved mildly, but the amount of fat was unchanged. ( info)

4/389. Symmetric lipomatosis of the tongue: report of a case and review of the literature.

    lipomatosis of the tongue is an extremely rare condition. To date, only 5 cases have been reported in the literature. An additional example, confirmed by biopsy, is presented. This appears to represent only the second instance of a nonoriental person who has been described with this condition. ( info)

5/389. Symptomatic spinal epidural lipomatosis after local epidural corticosteroid injections: case report.

    OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE: Spinal epidural lipomatosis, which causes symptomatic compression of neural elements, is a well known but uncommon complication of Cushing's syndrome. Spinal epidural lipomatosis has been reported frequently in association with chronic systemic corticosteroid therapy, but thus far only one case has been attributed to local epidural corticosteroid injections. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: We report another case of symptomatic spinal epidural lipomatosis after epidural corticosteroid injections. This is the first such case documented by magnetic resonance imaging and confirmed with surgical exploration. INTERVENTION: The patient's symptoms of neurogenic claudication resolved after lumbar laminectomy in the region of previous corticosteroid injections and the removal of epidural fat, which was compressing the thecal sac. CONCLUSION: This case should alert clinicians that epidural lipomatosis, which causes symptomatic thecal sac compression, is a possible complication, not only of systemic glucocorticoid therapy, but also of local epidural corticosteroid injections.

6/389. Excessive nodular hyperplasia of brunner glands associated with gastric hypersecretion and lipomatous atrophy of the pancreas.

    The case of a 34-year-old woman complaining of diarrhoea and abdominal pain is presented. Contrast radiography and endoscopy showed multiple polypoid tumours in the second part of the duodenum. Moreover, a severe fatty infiltration of the pancreas was shown by magnetic resonance and computed tomography scans. Due to pain, pancreatoduodenectomy (Whipple operation) was performed, and subsequent histopathologic examinations showed excessive Brunner gland hyperplasia of the duodenum and severe lipomatous atrophy of the pancreas. The occurrence of these two rare conditions in one patient has not been described previously, and it is conceivable that the lipomatous atrophy and exocrine insufficiency of the pancreas may have caused a compensatory stimulation of the submucosal structures of the duodenum.

7/389. Encephalocraniocutaneous lipomatosis with otolaryngologic manifestations: a rare neurocutaneous syndrome.

    Encephalocraniocutaneous lipomatosis (ECCL) is a rare congenital disorder and was first described in 1970. The main clinical features of the syndrome include convulsions beginning in infancy, mental retardation, and unilateral cutaneous and ophthalmologic lesions with ipsilateral cerebral manifestations. A 14-year-old caucasian boy with ECCL associated with otolaryngologic manifestations is reported. To our knowledge, this is the first case of ECCL with otolaryngologic manifestation in the English literature. ( info)

8/389. Renal replacement lipomatosis: ultrasonography and computed tomography findings.

    Replacement lipomatosis of the kidney is the result of severe atrophy or destruction of the renal parenchyma often caused by calculous disease with secondary marked proliferation of renal sinus, renal hilus, and perirenal fatty tissue. The diagnosis is difficult to establish with conventional radiographic methods. Although ultrasonography may show highly suggestive findings, computed tomography seems to be the most accurate method for demonstrating the distinctive features of replacement lipomatosis. Ultrasonographic and computed tomographic features in three cases of replacement lipomatosis of the kidney are reported. ( info)

9/389. Endoscopic retrograde pancreatographic findings of pancreatic lipomatosis.

    Pancreatic lipomatosis is characterized by fatty infiltration or replacement of the pancreas, and has been associated with many conditions. We recently experienced two cases of pancreatic lipomatosis in patients with pancreatic pseudocyst and a case of lipomatosis in diabetes mellitus. In these patients, abrupt obstruction of the main pancreatic duct with smooth tapering is a typical endoscopic retrograde pancreatography (ERP) finding of pancreatic lipomatosis and must be differentiated with pancreatic carcinoma.

10/389. Epidural lipomatosis complicating lumbar steroid injections.

    Corticosteroid injections into the spinal epidural space are frequently used to effect a relief of back pain and associated radicular extremity symptoms. Spinal epidural lipomatosis has been documented after the use of systemic corticosteroid therapy. This case report documents the development of epidural lipomatosis after the administration of multiple epidural steroid injections. The development and subsequent resolution after discontinuation of the steroid injections are demonstrated with serial magnetic resonance imaging. ( info)
