Histopathologic analysis demonstrated mature adipocytes, keloidal collagen, and multiple fibroblasts with slender dendritic processes within a myxoid stroma. No lipoblasts were seen. The dendritic cells stained positive for CD34; the adipocytes stained positive for S-100; and the Ki-67 stain showed a low growth fraction. The larger tumor was then completely removed by simple excision. The excised tumor weighed more than 145 kg. The second tumor was scheduled to be excised at a later date, after the first incision site was healed.
