Lipogranuloma of Hand Due to High Pressure Diesel Injury
Lipogranuloma has been reported to develop after introduction of lipoid material into the body accidentally, self injection or as a part of medical treatment. From the outset these lesions confuse the physicians with the neoplastic growths unless the history is elicited carefully. Such lesion as a result of exposure to high pressure diesel injury to hand is hardly reported. One of our patients sustained such injury and developed Lipogranuloma of hand. Surgical treatment was offered to this patient in multiple stages and the specimen was found to have Lipogranuloma microscopically. This case was unique because the lesion involved the digit circumferentially which alarm meticulous surgi-cal treatment in order to maintain the neurovascular integrity and the function as well.
