J Cutan Pathol. 1992 Aug;19(4):330-3. doi: 10.1111/j.1600-0560.1992.tb01370.x.


A case of pleomorphic lipoma is described. Pleomorphic lipoma is included in the "atypical" lipoma classification. Because of its atypical microscopic appearance, it must be differentiated from liposarcoma. We will discuss pleomorphic lipoma and its position in the classification of atypical fatty tumors.
