Madelung’s disease also called benign symmetric lipomatosis is a rare disorder of unknown etiology. The disease affects almost exclusively middle-aged men with a history of multi-year alcohol abuse. The major symptom is presence of non-encapsulated benign fat masses, especially in the area of the head and neck. Limited head and neck movement, dysphagia, and dyspnea may appear as well.
The diagnosis is clinical and is supported by imaging methods, often elevated hepatic enzymes in blood serum, and histological examination with finding of mature adipose tissue without signs of proliferation. Therapeutic methods involve liposuction or excision which is a method of choice nowadays.
In this article the authors review current knowledge, research state, and present five cases of the Madelung’s disease occurring within the last 10 years at the Clinic of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery in Martin, Slovakia.
that a dermatologist should be using a scalpel
or a liposuction cannula - it comes with the territory
and the bell cannot be unrung. It is indisputable
that dermatologists are best suited to treat skin
disorders: inflammatory, cancerous or esthetic.
Unfortunately, specialty training programs in Serbia
and some neighboring countries are obviously short
of courses improving knowledge and skills. Ever more
competitive environment in the field of medicine
forces us to move on.

of the highest quality cells and enable efficient and safe cell culture. Origin and isolation of stem cells The increasing popularity of stem cells in medicine requires an improvement in cell culture methods and techniques of isolation. Adipose-derived stem cells Human adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) are one of the most frequently used stem cells. ASCs have many applications because they can differentiate towards osteogenic, chondrogenic and adipogenic phenotypes [ 2 ]. The ASCs are collected via surgical excision of the adipose tissue or liposuction, which
beenobserved that large amounts of stem cells can be obtained from large quantities of fat tissue extracted both by aspiration and excision [ 3 ]. ADSCs can be obtained by both liposuction and excision of adipose tissue, which is often discarded aftersurgery, with the former method described as the better method of their preparation for storage. In fact, liposuction sample analysis does not show a significant loss of preadipocytes which shows it does not significantly damage the stroma [ 4 ]. Hence, a large number of ADSCs can be harvested from adipose tissue and do not need
