Several different types of lipomatosis have been described: 1) multiple symmetric lipomatosis, characterized by a symmetric formation of fatty tumors (1, 2), associated with signs of a mediastinal location (3) and neuropathy; 2) pelvic lipomatosis, characterized by fat accumulation in the pelvic cavity with vescical and ureteral displacement, compression, and occlusion (4); 3) mediastino-abdominal lipomatosis, characterized by an intrathoracic and intra-abdominal accumulation of fat, mimicking a respiratory disease and ascites (5); 4) mediastinal lipomatosis, frequently associated with longterm steroid exposure (6); 5) renal sinus and perirenal lipomatosis, characterized by a tumorlike accumulation of fat in the renal and perirenal space
