Abstract

Macrodystrophia Lipomatosa (MDL) is a rare cause of localized gigantism of obscured aetiology generally affecting hands and feet. The disease is congenital but not hereditary and present in infancy or during early childhood. It is characterized by progressive overgrowth of all the mesenchymal elements in a somatosome usually of a limb, with predominance of fibro – fatty elements.
