Benign symmetric lipomatosis, or Launois-Bensaude syndrome is characterized by symmetric and massive fatty deposits, predominantly located in the neck and shoulders.
The disease may be asymptomatic, but in some cases, due to the grotesque disfigurement, can cause significant esthetic or psychologic problems. A 76 year old patient with a history of
subcutaneous masses arising in the arm and leg areas who showed benign symmetric lipomatosis is reported herein.
