Troublesome Lipomata of the Upper Extremity

White, William L.; Hanna, Dwight C.


Lipomata are generally regarded as harmless tumors occurring anywhere on the body but rarely found in the hand. This report concerns lipomata involving the upper extremity, including the hand and fingers. Four cases are reported in two of which there was disturbance of a peripheral nerve caused by compression by lipoma.
