Familial Multiple Lipomatosis (FML) is a hereditary condition with a proposed autosomal-dominant inheritance in which groups of fat cells in the subcutaneous tissues begin to grow and produce multiple fatty lumps underneath the skin. These fatty lumps are benign fatty tumors or lipomas.

FML was first described in 1857 by Murchison and is a rare disorder that tends to run in families. FML affects both men and women.

Symptoms


The main symptoms of FML are the lipomas that appear on the arms, thighs, abdomen, and neck of the patient. (The lipomas can also occur on the face and buttocks and lower legs as well.) The head and shoulders are usually spared. The presentation of this disease is rather variable. These lipomas occur in subcutaneous fat, can vary widely in size, can be surrounded by connective tissue or not, and may or may not be attached to the skin and other nearby structures including muscle. They are rubbery, moveable, and ovoid to round in shape. The lipomas in FML are not normally painful, unless they are located in a regularly irritated area. They can appear singularly or may be in large clusters. The lipomas typically appear during or soon after adolescence, although FML has also been reported to appear at the third decade. Usually a family history of multiple lipomas does exist.

Hi,
Would anyone be able to comment on whether or not , since it is listed in the ICD, removal of Familial Multiple Lipomas is covered by insurance. I understand it is up to the individual carrier, but this is a general inquiry.

Thanks very much

Hi Ellimac,

unfortunally there is now overall answer to your question. It depends on many things like the country you live in, insurance company and whether the lipomas hurt or not. Which kind of method was used to remove the lipomas and does the doctor/insurance company think that the removal is merely a cosmetic procedure.

I think most insurances will cover the removal of lipomas by surgery if you complain that they cause you physical discomfort.

All the best! ;)

Hi there, I have been asking the same thing over and over again. For heavens sake, it's 2011 not the Stone Age! And the only treatment we have for lipomas is invasive surgery. None of the non-invasive treatments have yet had a breakthrough. Unfortunally, but I'm pretty sure we are getting there soon. I see many members in this forum willing to go the extra mile. Many are currently testing and reporting it here. We are on a roll. :)

Just hang in there.
