Macrodystrophia lipomatosa. A case report.
Ethiop Med J. 1995 Jul; 33(3):187-92.EM

Abstract

Macrodystrophia lipomatosa, a rare form of localized gigantism of unknown cause, is characterized by a dramatic overgrowth of all the mesenchymal elements, particularly the fibroadipose tissue, of one or more digits of the foot or hand. Of the known forms, static and progressive (1), we report the case of an African patient, of Bantu origin, who had a progressive deformity of his left hand.
