Abstract

Lipoma arborescens is a rare intra-articular lesion, characterised by diffuse replacement of the subsynovial tissue by mature fat cells, producing prominent villous transformation of the synovium. The aetiology of this benign rendition is unknown. We describe six cases involving the knee, discussing the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment.
