Macrodystrophia lipomatosa of the foot: A case report

, : Macrodystrophia lipomatosa of the foot: A case report. Oncology Letters 10(2): 951-953

NlmCategory="UNASSIGNED">Macrodystrophia lipomatosa is a sporadic, nonhereditary developmental anomaly and a rare form of congenital localized gigantism. It is characterized by the proliferation of all the mesenchymal elements of a digit or digits, and a disproportionate increase of fibroadipose tissue involving the nerve sheath, muscle, periosteum and bone marrow. In the present study, a 9-month-old boy was referred to Gazi University Hospital (Ankara, Turkey) with congenital unilateral enlargement of the right forefoot, particularly involving the second and third toes. X-ray and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans were performed in order to assess the skeletal structures. The present study described the characteristic imaging features, with an emphasis on the MRI findings, of this rare congenital form of gigantism.

Obturator pyomyositis is a rare condition in children. Diagnosis is often delayed because of its rarity, and the vagaries of its presentation cause it to be easily be missed. Physicians should therefore familiarize themselves with this condition a...
