Juxta-articular adiposis dolorosa is a rare subtype of Dercum’s disease. It manifests mainly on the medial parts of the knees. Pain and impaired mobility are common symptoms. We report on four females (aged between 52 and 83 years) who suffered from juxta-articular adiposis dolorosa for more than 10 years. These patients were successfully treated by dermolipectomy resulting in dramatically improved pain and mobility. Adverse effects and complications were minor with a lymph fistula in a single patient which was treated by surgery.
