Angiolipomas are subcutaneous tumors composed of a mixture of adipocytes and blood vessels. The tumor resembles lipomas clinically, but develops in young adults, and favored sites for this tumor are the arms and the trunk. They are usually multiple, often painful or tender and tend to be small. There have been 4 reported cases of angiolipoma in Korea. But they are mostly few, small and tend to be limited in trunk or upper extremities. Then we report a case that the total number of the masses is over 100 and multiple isolated masses up to 12cm in size were found on the whole body. The treatment with triamcinolone intralesional injection in the only one mass showed partial response but the other trial with enoxaparin didn't.
