 Benign symmetric lipomatosisis(BSL)is a rare disease characterized by massively symmetric fat deposits predominantly in the neck and shoulder girdle area.

 A 61-year-old man referred to our hospital complaining of masses in the neck, shoulders, and arms. He underwent surgical treatment based on functional reasons of feeling pressure in his neck. Histopathologically, he was diagnosed as Madelung disease.

 The other 59-year-old man presented with a complaint of neck swelling. He was diagnosed as BSL by radiological examination and fine-needle aspiration biopsy. He had no symptom of functional disorder such as dyspnea,or disphagia. The patient was informed the diagnosis in details,and a simple observation was given.
