      The magnetic resonance findings in a patient with acquired partial lipodystrophy are described. Adipose tissue in a variety of locations, including the retroperitoneum and bone marrow, is well demonstrated by magnetic resonance in several anatomic planes. Magnetic resonance may provide complementary information to clinical findings in evaluation of patients with partial lipodystrophy.
