Giant inframuscular lipoma
disclosed 14 years after a blunt trauma: A case report
Lipoma is the most frequent benign
tumor of the soft tissue. This lesion is often asymptomatic except in cases of
enormous masses compressing nervous-vascular structures. Although the diagnosis
is mostly clinical, imaging tools are useful to confirm the adipose nature of
the lesion and to define its anatomic border. Sometimes, lipomas may be the
result of a previous trauma, such as in this patient.
A 45-year-old man presented at our
institution with a giant hard firm mass in the upper external quadrant of the
right buttock disclosed after a weight loss diet. Subsequent magnetic resonance
imaging showed a giant adipose mass developed beneath the large gluteal muscle
and among the fibers of the medium and small gluteal muscles. When questioned
on his medical history, the patient reported a blunt trauma of the lower back
14 years earlier. He underwent surgery and histological examination confirmed a
Lipomas might result from a
previous trauma. It is hypothesized that the trigger mechanism is activated by
cytokine and growth factors released after the trauma. We herein present an
exceptional case of a giant post-traumatic lipoma which caused a painful
compression on the right sciatic nerve.
