A neglected case of macrodystrophia lipomatosa of the foot in an elderly man.
J Am Podiatr Med Assoc. 2005 Sep-Oct; 95(5):486-90.JA

Abstract

Macrodystrophia lipomatosa is a rare disorder characterized by three-dimensional enlargement of one or more fingers or toes with predominantly fibroadipose tissue. Radiographically, it appears as hypertrophy of soft tissues and bones. The pathologic findings are infiltration and hypertrophy of adipose tissue in subcutaneous tissue, nerve sheaths, and periosteum. Macrodystrophia lipomatosa is usually diagnosed during childhood. The case presented here involves the most elderly patient with the condition ever reported, to our knowledge. As such, it may advance current knowledge of macrodystrophia lipomatosa. Special emphasis is given to the unique "bridge" formation seen radiographically in this case.
