Abstract

We report a case of macrodystrophia lipomatosa in an infant with extension of hypertrophied fatty tissue into the abdomen and abdominal wall. The patient not only presented with typical limb abnormalities but also an abdominal mass. We reviewed the literature on the subject, and believe that our case is rare because the hypertrophied lipomatous tissue extended into the abdomen.
