Symmetrical Lipodystrophy with Hypothyroidism

We present the history and treatment of a woman who had benign symmetrical lipomatosis and hypothyroidism. We suggest full thyroid investigation of future patients. We also suggest shortening the name of the disorder to symmetrical lipodystrophy, since the syndrome seems to be related to fat deposit growth rather than lipoma, and no malignant variant has been reported.
