Abstract :

A 69-year-old southern Arabic female presented to our dermatology clinic at King Fahd Hospital of the University as a follow-up case of lipedematous scalp diagnosed in our clinic in 2003. She is a known case of supraventricular tachycardia and hypercholestermia well controlled with medication. Besides, the patient´┐Ż?? scalp condition was last evaluated four years prior to her current visit in our clinic with no significant change. Interestingly, on examination of the scalp, there was absence of the spongy feeling on palpation and there was no loss of hair. Routine blood tests were normal. Axial computed tomography of the skull showed scalp thickness in the high occipitoparietal region of 8 mm as compared to 21.1 mm in 2003, while mid sagittal reconstructed computed tomography showed a scalp thickness at the high occipitoparietal region of 9 mm as compared to 16.9 mm in 2003. Subcutaneous fat thickness was almost 6 mm at the occipitoparietal region which is normal compared to 19.2 mm reported in 2003 in the same region. Hence, we confirmed our impression of spontaneous complete resolution of lipedematous scalp after 13 years duration.
