Abstract

Lipedematous scalp was first reported by Cornbleet in 1935, and is characterized by an increase in the thickness of scalp subcutaneous fat tissue without hair changes. We present a case of a 40-year-old female with a diffusely thickened scalp since birth. The lesion was soft, and movable without color changes or hair loss. Histopathologic features and magnetic resonance imaging findings were compatible with a diagnosis of lipedematous scalp involving almost the entire scalp.
