Dercum's disease is a rare disease, which mainly affects women and has an unknown prevalence and aetiology. The disease is characterised by generalised obesity and more than three-month painful subcutaneous adipose tissue not responding to usual pain treatment. A suggested classi-fication of the disease includes four types: generalised diffuse, generalised nodular, localised nodular and juxta-articular. Diagnosis is one of exclusion, and treatment includes medical and surgical options with the aim of pain palliation and increased mobility and function.
