Summaries for Adiposis Dolorosa

OMIM : 58 Adiposis dolorosa, also known as Dercum disease, is characterized by generalized obesity and pronounced, disabling, and chronic pain in the adipose tissue of the proximal extremities, trunk, pelvic area, and buttocks; the face and hands are usually spared. There are a number of associated symptoms, including multiple lipomas, generalized weakness, fatigue, sleep disturbances, constipation, and psychiatric abnormalities. It is 5 to 30 times more common in women than men, and usually presents between 35 and 50 years of age (summary by Campen et al., 2001; review by Hansson et al., 2012). Based on a review of the literature and studies of 111 patients, Hansson et al. (2012) proposed a classification of Dercum disease into 4 types: (I) generalized diffuse form without clear lipomas, (II) generalized nodular form with multiple lipomas, (III) localized nodular form, and (IV) juxtaarticular form with solitary fatty deposits near joints. (103200)

MalaCards based summary : Adiposis Dolorosa, also known as dercum disease, is related to localized lipodystrophy and vulvovaginal gingival syndrome, and has symptoms including constipation, fatigue and arthralgia. An important gene associated with Adiposis Dolorosa is IL13 (Interleukin 13), and among its related pathways/superpathways is Adipogenesis. Affiliated tissues include skin, adipocyte and liver, and related phenotypes are obesity and depressivity

Genetics Home Reference : 26 Adiposis dolorosa is a condition characterized by painful folds of fatty (adipose) tissue or the growth of multiple noncancerous (benign) fatty tumors called lipomas. This condition occurs most often in women who are overweight or obese, and signs and symptoms typically appear between ages 35 and 50.

NIH Rare Diseases : 54 Adiposis dolorosa is a rare condition characterized by the growth of multiple, painful, lipomas (benign, fatty tumors). The lipomas may occur anywhere on the body and can cause severe pain. Other symptoms may include weakness, fatigue, and memory disturbances. It usually occurs in adults, and women are more commonly affected than men. Adiposis dolorosa is chronic and tends to be progressive. The exact cause is unknown. Most cases are sporadic (not inherited) but a few familial cases with autosomal dominant inheritance have been reported. The pain associated with adiposis dolorosa is difficult to treat. Surgical removal or liposuction may help, but lipomas may recur.
