Abstract

Pelvic lipomatosis is a rare disease by excessive proliferation of the mature fat in the pelvic extraperitoneal space. Cystitis cystica, often occurring concurrently with pelvic lipomatosis, is a rare proliferative inflammatory disease of the bladder. The diagnosis of pelvic lipomatosis is established on radiographic examination, not on pathology. We report a case of pelvic lipomatosis associated with cystitis cystica and chronic metaplasia of the urinary bladder.
