Imaging of fatty tumors: distinction of lipoma
and well-differentiated liposarcoma.
lesion can occur almost anywhere in the body; oral lipomas
predominantly affect the buccal mucosa, lips, tongue, palate and floor of mouth.
3] We described herein a rare posterior mediastinal lipoma
with extension to the spinal canal, subdural space, and spinal cord through a Kovalevsky canal.
After sending the cheesy aspirate, which was obtained from the swelling before the surgery with the help of fine needle aspiration technique using a wide bore needle for histopathological examination, the reports confirmed it to be an epidermoid cyst with no further malignant transformation as the cyst is lined with stratified squamous epithelium with no dysplastic features, hence ruling out the possibility of a benign lipoma
arborescence (LA) is a rare benign idiopathic intra articular lesion that involves the knee joint, particularly the supra patellar pouch.
(from Latin lipoma
) is the most common benign tumor of mesenchymal origin.
The differential diagnosis may include some benign and malignant gastric neoplasms, such as nonneoplastic gastric polyps; some other soft tissue tumors with lipomatous components/differentiation, such as lipoma
, angiomyolipoma, and well-differentiated liposarcoma; and vascular lesions, such as angiodysplasia and glomus tumors.
Fibrolipoma, a histologic variant of lipoma
, is characterised by mature adipose tissue which is separated into lobules by fibrous strands.
Conclusion: Intracalcaneal lipoma
should be considered in the differential diagnosis of the patients with heel pain.

Histopathological examination revealed that growth was lipoma
El Hibernoma o lipoma
de grasa parda, descrito originalmente en 1906 por Merkel (1), es un tumor benigno extremadamente infrecuente, nombrado primeramente como Pseudolipoma.
