 [lip″o-gran″u-lo″mah-to´sis]
a condition of faulty lipid metabolism in which yellow nodules of lipoid material are deposited in the skin and mucosae, giving rise to granulomatous reactions.

lipogranulomatosis

A rare metabolic disease in which the absence of an enzyme results in the accumulation of fatty material (ceramides and gangliosides) in nerve cells. This causes severe brain damage and death usually by the age of 2.

Interestingly, mutations in ASAH1 are also associated with Farber lipogranulomatosis, a severe early-onset lysosomal storage disorder affecting multiple tissues characterised by the accumulation of sphingolipids.
The clinical signs, gross lesions, and histologic lesions are characteristic of massive fat necrosis (lipogranulomatosis) in ruminants and mesenteric panniculitis in humans and companion mammals.

(1-3) The lesions in this bird most resembled idiopathic massive fat necrosis (lipogranulomatosis) in cattle.
Therefore, these earlier signs were possibly the result of the inflammatory effects of lipogranulomatosis. This is supported by cytologic evidence of coelomic inflammation, obtained by fine-needle aspirate during the episode occurring 6 months before presentation.
The cause of massive fat necrosis (lipogranulomatosis) in ruminants is unknown.
Clinical signs seen in this bird 6 months before presentation were compatible with a prior episode of yolk coelomitis or of concurrent lipogranulomatosis. The combination of chronic, repeated episodes of yolk release into the coelom, along with overconditioning, represents a possible explanation for the widespread nature of this bird's lipogranulomatosis.
Diffuse lipogranulomatosis involving soft tissues of the head and neck due to multiple self-injections of mineral oil.
