Lipoma, intramuscular - Arm - MRI
  • Case ID: 273
  • Diagnosis: Lipoma, intramuscular
  • Category: Soft Tissue Tumors
  • Category Type: Fatty
  • Category Sub Type: Benign
  • Location: Arm
  • Age: 11
  • Sex: M
  • Treatment: Resection
  • Image ID: 2130
  • Image Type: MRI
  • Images relating to this case: 2129 , 2130.

Coronal T1-weighted MRI image again shows the high signal features of a benign lipoma within the deltoid muscle. This is similar to the signal of the adjacent subcutaneous fat. Again, a few areas of low signal patches within the lipoma suggest a possible variant, but it is very unlikely that they would represent a liposarcoma. In this case, the tumor was surgically resected with tight margins. Histologically, the lesion turned out to be a benign intramuscular lipoma without a malignant component.
