Two cases of Madelung disease (benign symmetrical lipomatosis) are presented. The MR findings in this striking condition are demonstrated. Short-repetition-time/short-echo time sequences nicely show the relationship of the cervical lipomatous accumulations to the airway and major neurovascular structures in the carotid spaces. Fat-suppression techniques add no additional information in the radiologic evaluation of these patients.
