• We describe a case of lipodystrophia centrifugalis abdominalis lasting until 46 years of age. Recently, angioblastoma (Nakagawa), which contained large numbers of mast cells, developed in the same region. A case of lipodystrophia centrifugalis abdominalis with an infant-onset that lasted until adulthood has not been reported. This is the first report of lipodystrophia centrifugalis abdominalis that lasted until adulthood.
