Angiolipoma in Child
Symptomatic angiolipomas have been noted to appear with the initiation of antiretroviral therapy in HIV patients. This may be associated with fat redistribution that has been observed with protease inhibitors.
Extracutaneous angiolipomas may also occur. They may be found in the kidneys in association with tuberous sclerosis. They account for less than 1% of spinal tumors, in which case they may be associated with spina bifida.

Differential Diagnosis & Pitfalls
- Epidermoid cysts (epidermal inclusion cysts) have a characteristic overlying punctum.
- Blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome
- Dercum disease
- Glomus tumor
- Granular cell tumor
- Hibernoma – These are often large, persistent lipomatous lesions on the neck, back, or axilla. Biopsy is necessary for definitive diagnosis.
- Abscess – One would expect to see accompanying erythema and induration.
- Metastatic malignancy is usually much firmer to the touch.
