Title: Recurrent growth of lipomas after previous treatment with phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholate.

Authors: Pindur L, Sand M, Altmeyer P, Bechara FG, Bochum/Germany

Journal: J. Cosmet. Laser Ther. 2011 13: 95-96


A patient presented with recurrent growth lipomas that were previously successfully treated using polyenylphosphatidylcholine and deoxycholate.

Material and Methods

A 33-year-old male Caucasian presented with familial multiple lipomatosis. The patient reported multiple previous surgical extirpations of lipomas. Multiple subcutaneous nodules of 0.5-4.5 cm in diameter were present, mainly located on the upper and lower extremities. Ten lipomas were treated with 0.5-0.9 ml Lipostabil i.v., depending on the size of the lipomas. Four injections were given at intervals of 6 weeks.


All lipomas showed a clinically visible reduction in size and a shrinking down to skin level. However, none of the lipomas were completely eliminated. Twelve months after the last injection the patient reported re-growth of all lipomas, starting 7 months after the last injection. The authors initiated a further treatment sequence with Lipostabil and again successfully reduced the size of each lipoma.


It is the first published lipoma study with long-term follow-up, showing re-growth of the lipomas after about 7 months after treatment. After a questionnaire amongst NETWORK members we can state, that there exists only 1 more case where a re-growth of a lipoma has been observed after 4 years. Alle other treated lipomas did not grow again.
