Synopsis

Angiolipomas are benign tumors of adipocytes that differ from lipomas in their composition because they include vascular and neural elements. They may be tender or painful, possibly due to minor trauma, especially during their growth phase. Angiolipomas are usually found on the upper extremities and trunk. 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. Later in life, they are associated with CNS findings of acute back pain with abnormal neurologic findings (weakness, hyperreflexia, spasticity).
