Lipoma arborescens (LA) is a benign lesion described as replacement of mature fat cells with sub-synovial tissue, which causes the formation of villous projections. Underlying inflammatory conditions might predispose LA. This study demonstrates the treatment, post-operative survey and MRI demonstrations of this rare entity.
