Mixed generalized/juxta-articular form of Dercum’s disease

THIS IS FOR YOU BRIAN

Dercum's Disease Research

Dercum’s disease is a rare disorder with subcutaneous formation of fatty tissue (lipomas) with symptoms of pain, fatigue, stiffness, weakness and in some cases arthritis.

Differential diagnosis excluded fibromyalgia, benign symmetric lipomatosis, lipedema, adenolipomatosis, and panniculitis.

Dercum’s disease appears in nodular, generalized and juxta-articular forms. In this short report, we report a patient with mixed generalized/juxta-articular form. The patient responded well to medication with paracetamol administered in low doses. We recommended continuation of this treatment as well as monitoring for diabetes or glucose intolerance. Metabolic disturbances are common in patients with Dercum’s disease.
