When it occurs in the uterus, this type of neoplasm is called lipoleiomyoma
and it has already been described in dogs (MANJUNATHA et al., 2010; SYCAMORE & JULIAN, 2011; WOLDEMESKEL, 2008).
The literature contains case reports about preperitoneal lipomas and preperitoneal lipoleiomyoma
. Fibrolipomas are known to occur at many various locations such as the esophagus, nerves, oral cavity, spermatic cord, and retroperitoneum (5).
Nevertheless, our case is the only one associated with adenomyosis and a differential diagnosis must be made between adenolipoleiomyoma and lipoleiomyoma
involved by adenomyosis.
Angiomyolipomas may mimic lipoleiomyoma
, degenerated myoma and vascular leiomyoma with a fat component (16).
Denovo growth of a large preperitoneal lipoleiomyoma
of the anterior abdominal wall.
is a rare neoplasm consisting of smooth muscle and mature adipocytes.
of the Abdominal wall in a postmenopausal woman.
Some subsets of degeneration include hemorrhagic, fatty (lipoleiomyoma
) (Figure 4), myxoid, hyaline, and cystic.
is an alteration that was previously called as fatty metamorphosis, lipomatous degeneration, adipose metaplasia, etc.
(19) One unusual kind of leiomyoma is the lipoleiomyoma
, which contains a considerable amount of fat.
On histopathological examination again we got rare findings suggestive of Lipoleiomyoma
. Pathology revealed admixture of mature adipose tissues and smooth muscles with hyaline degeneration.
