What is your diagnosis?
M 40, abdomen

 

Diagnosis: Angiolipoma   

   Comment:

Otherwise a typical lipoma with proliferation of capillary and venule-sized

blood vessels.

Vascular proliferation is more prominent towards the periphery of the tumor.

Many of the vessels contain fibrin thrombi.

Clinically, in contrast to lipomas, angiolipomas tend to be painful.
