Multiple symmetric lipomatosis (MSL) is a rare disorder only mentioned in about 200 cases in the medical literature. It manifests as massive lipomatous deposits in specific areas of the body. The cause is unknown, although there frequently is a history of alcoholism. Surgical lipectomy has so far been the choice of treatment. We present a review of the disease and report one case successfully treated with liposuction.
