Migrating Pseudolipoma of Glisson's Capsule
Pseudolipomas of Glisson's capsule are rare benign subcapsular liver lesions that typically affect older men. They are composed of degenerating fat that is thought to originate from a detached epiploic appendage. On Computed Tomographic (CT) imaging, pseudolipomas of Glisson's capsule are well-circumscribed and hypoattenuating compared to the hepatic parenchyma. This case report examines three consecutive CT studies in the same patient that show the pseudolipoma migrating to a hepatic subcapsular location over a period of 4.5 months. To our knowledge, this is the first documented case of a pseudolipoma migrating over time and it supports the hypothesis of a migrating epiploic appendage forming a pseudolipoma of Glisson's capsule. A comprehensive review of relevant literature and a discussion of the presented case are provided.
