Abstract

Multiple symmetrical lipomatosis, also known as Madelung disease, Launois-Bensaude syndrome, and benign symmetrical lipomatosis, is an uncommon disease that is characterized by the presence of multiple and symmetrical deposits of nonencapsulated adipose tissue in the neck, upper trunk, arms, and legs. It affects mainly men, with a higher incidence in the Mediterranean area, and is typically associated with high alcohol consumption and a high prevalence of peripheral neuropathy that usually appears long after the development of lipomatous masses. We report the case of a patient with involvement of the scrotum. We present clinical, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance appearances of these scrotal lipomatous masses for the first time.
