Extracorporeal Acoustic Wave Therapy and Multiple Symmetric Lipomatosis.

Scarpa C, Vindigni V, Bassetto F - Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open (2015)

Bottom Line: Acoustic waves are mechanical waves recently used to activate tissue metabolism by exploiting the cell permeabilization caused by their passage.We report a case of a retroauricular lipoma in a 44-year-old woman affected by multiple symmetric lipomatosis and treated with extracorporeal acoustic wave therapy.The adipose thickness of the lipoma was reduced from 35.8 to 21 mm, with increased softness at palpatory examination.

Figure 1: Retroauricular lipoma.

Mentions: A 44-year-old woman, surgically treated several times for multiple symmetric lipomatosis, presented a retroauricular lipoma (Fig. 1). She reported pain and limited sleep, because of the inability to rest her head on the pillow. Clinically, the lipoma was hard, fibrotic, and 35.8-mm thick, as confirmed by ultrasound (Fig. 3A).
