Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Diffuse lipomatosis is a very rare condition, the nature of which, neoplastic or hamartomatous, has not yet been defined. We report the case of a small child with a right thoracic lesion of neonatal onset and extremely rapid growth, who successfully underwent complete surgical resection. The differential diagnoses and proper surgical treatment are discussed.
