Angiolipoma

    Clinical Features:

    • Painful benign subcutaneous lesion
    • Most common in young adults, with a predilection for the upper limbs
    • Multiple lesions have been reported associated with diabetes mellitus or HAART.

    Histologic Features:

    • Encapsulated subcutaneous lesion composed of mature adipocytes admixed with foci of anastamosing networks of small blood vessels
    • Some of the blood vessels contain fibrin thrombi.
    • If the blood vessels make up the majority of the tumor, the term "cellular angiolipoma" is used.
