The world literature on sclerosing lipogranuloma is reviewed and a further case described. The patient in this report has clinical features of sclerosing lipogranuloma and Weber-Christian disease, but the distinctive histological appearances of the former. The skin involvement and lymph node enlargement produced a diagnostic problem. Chemical examination of the fat was normal and should be carried out in every case to exclude exogenous granulomata.
