A condition characterized by the development of multiple adenolipomas: Adenolipomatosis is formed by many adenolipomas in the areas of the groin, axilla, and neck.
Not forming fat.
Characterized by the absence of lipoids.
Having no effect upon fat metabolism, nor upon the movement of fat to the liver.
A benign tumor composed of blood vessel, adipose tissue, and smooth muscle elements, such as that which occurs in the kidney in association with tuberous sclerosis, where it is usually called angiomyolipoma.
A lipoma containing clusters of thin-walled proliferating or prominent blood vessels; it is frequently painful.
A benign tumor containing vascular, adipose, and muscle elements; it occurs most often as a renal tumor with smooth muscle elements (more correctly called angiolipoleiomyoma) usually in association with tuberous sclerosis, and is considered to be a hamartoma (a benign tumor-like nodule composed of an overgrowth of mature cells and tissues that normally occur in the affected part but with disorganization and often with one element predominating).

It may be acquired or hereditary. Acquired forms accompany other disorders or may be caused by environmental factors such as diet.
There are a number of different hereditary forms, classified according to clinical features, enzymatic abnormalities, and serum lipoprotein patterns.

2. An extreme degree of fatty degeneration.
