Angiolipoma of index finger: A case report

Muzaffer Durmus, Nuri Yigit, Abdul Kerim Yapici.

Abstract
Angiolipomas are usually found in the upper extremities, shoulder and back. They are seldom found in the hands, face and lower extremities. They usually occur as painful soft tissue masses or they may compress the neighboring structures (e.g. nerves) depending on the size and location. In this report we present an angiolipoma case located in the finger and discuss related recent cases described in the literature.

Key words: Angiolipoma, finger, tumor, soft tissue
