Madelung's disease is a rare syndrome characterized by the presence of multiple masses of unencapsulated adipose tissue, symmetrically distributed throughout different regions. It predominantly affects middle-aged men of Mediterranean origin with a history of alcoholism. The pathogenesis is still unknown. Diagnosis is essentially established through clinical history and physical examination. We report two cases for their unusual presentation and to emphasize the importance of early diagnosis.

Abstract

Madelung's disease is a rare syndrome characterized by the presence of multiple masses of unencapsulated adipose tissue, symmetrically distributed throughout different regions. It predominantly affects middle-aged men of Mediterranean origin with a history of alcoholism. The pathogenesis is still unknown. Diagnosis is essentially established through clinical history and physical examination. We report two cases for their unusual presentation and to emphasize the importance of early diagnosis.
