Abstract

Lipomatosis is a benign and non-encapsulated mature form of fat tissue proliferation, which can be isolated or multiple, symmetrical or infiltrative, and may be associated with several syndromes. Lipomatosis has been reported to involve almost every part and organ in the body. In this review, we present imaging findings at common locations of lipomatosis and summarize lipomatosis-related syndromes.
