Abstract

We present a 28-year-old female with a rare familial partial lipodystrophy. Originally presenting at the age of 14, she began experiencing hypertrophy of the fat in the mons pubis and labia majora regions. By the age of 24 she had disfiguring hypertrophy of these areas with severe fatty overgrowth, similar in nature to that experienced by her father and paternal grandmother. During her workup and planning for suction lipectomy, she underwent computed tomography angiography with the imaging manifestation of severe massive subcutaneous fat hypertrophy; the imaging appearance was only able to be explained after a thorough review of the patient's history and medical literature.
