lipomatosis

a condition characterized by abnormal localized, or tumor-like, accumulations of fat in the tissues. Large lipomatous masses occur in large numbers in the peritoneal cavity of cattle. They have importance in that they may be mistaken for calves on rectal examination. They may also cause chronic partial obstruction of the intestine with intermittent colic and indifferent appetite as the main signs. The common sites for the obstructions are the pylorus and the coiled colon. Called also massive fat necrosis.
