Synchronous bilateral lipoma arborescens of bicipitoradial bursa-a rare entity.
Skeletal Radiol 2018; 47(10):1425-1429SR

Abstract

Lipoma arborescens is a rare non-neoplastic condition that affects the synovial lining of joints and bursae accounting for less than 1% of all lipomatous lesions. Characterized by villous proliferation of the synovium, it is an uncommon cause of intra/periarticular mass presenting as a painless, slowly progressive longstanding swelling, and is sometimes accompanied by intermittent monoarticular effusions. We describe a rare case of bilateral lipoma arborescens in the bicipitoradial bursae in a young male referred for MRI evaluation of spontaneous bilateral elbow swelling. We chose to bring this case to light because of the rare simultaneous involvement of the bicipitoradial bursae bilaterally and the role of MR in providing a definite diagnosis, hence obviating the need for biopsy and avoiding consideration of other complex intra/periarticular masses.
