Multiple symmetric lipomatosis
may be the consequence of defective noradrenergic modulation of proliferation and differentiation of brown fat cells.
In our case, magnetic resonance imaging examination of the lumbosacral spine revealed spinal stenosis secondary to epidural lipomatosis
extending from L4 to S1.
Rare etiology of obstructive urophathy: Pelvic lipomatosis
Los adipocitos de las zonas de lipomatosis

7] Ethanol can decrease the activities of the beta(3)-adrenergic receptors and disturb the catalytic unit of adenylyl cyclase, which interferes with the noradrenaline induced synthesis of intracellular cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) and, therefore, leads to a defect in adrenergic-stimulated lipolysis and could cause dysfunction of fat cells in benign symmetric lipomatosis
Oculocerebrocutaneous and encephalocraniocutaneous lipomatosis
syndromes: blind men and an elephant or separate syndromes?
Spinal epidural lipomatosis
is an excessive deposition of unencapsulated fat in the epidural space.
10) Although there may occasionally be areas of lipomatosis
of the pancreas in CP, the ducts in those areas retain at least a thin circumferential rim of fibrous stroma that separates it from the adipocytes.
One patient had anterior mediastinal widening with Hounsefeld value of -40 on CT chest suggestive of lipomatosis
The criteria to diagnose lipodistrophy included at least one moderate or severe feature of lipoatrophy, of diffuse fat accumulation, or of lipomatosis
that appeared after the diagnosis of HIV infection.
Yet failure to access the lumbar cistern can occur in a variety of clinical situations, including the development of subdural haemorrhages in the lumbar cistern, the presence of epidural lipomatosis
and spinal stenosis.
In addition, 5 years before this admission, a computed tomographic (CT) scan performed after an abnormal chest radiograph revealed anterior mediastinal lipomatosis
