Proteus syndrome: report of a case with recurrent abdominal lipomatosis.

Proteus syndrome (PS) is an extremely rare congenital hamartomatous syndrome that was first delineated by Cohen and Hayden (1). The estimated prevalence is less than 1 per 1,000,000 live births (2). It is a sporadic disorder that causes overgrowth of multiple tissues, especially bone, fat, and other connective tissues in a patchy or mosaic pattern. Subcutaneous as well as internal lipomas that may grow to an enormous size are frequently observed.
