JUXTA-ARTICULAR ADIPOSIS DOLOROSA IN LIPEDEMA PATIENTS
Städtisches Klinikum Dresden, Department of Dermatology and Allergology, Germany
Both lipedema and juxta-articular adiposis dolorsa are painful disorders of subcutaneous adipose tissue. We investigated 297 female patients with lipedema treated at our department for the presence of juxta-articular adiposis dolorsa. Occurrence of both disorders was identified in 4.4% of lipedema patients.
The common presence of both disorders was observed only in more advanced lipedema (grade II and III). Juxta-articular adiposis dolorosa of the knees is seen exclusively on the inner knees, and it presents neither bruising nor creases or hypothermia. choices of surgical treatment are either microcannula liposuction or dermolipectomy. recurrences have not been observed.
