The diagnosis of fat herniation should be considered in patients with positionally variable subcutaneous nodules, especially in the lower extremities, a rare condition occurred through weak points of fascia cruris crossed by perforating vessels that cause fascial defect. Ultrasonographic examination is useful for detecting the fascial defect; in addition to offering high-resolution imaging, ultrasound also provides the capability of real-time dynamic assessment of soft-tissue structures excluding other conditions caused by soft tissue tumours such as lipomas, angiolipomas, fibromas and the relatively common condition of muscle herniation. A MRI exam, performed by T1 weighted, T2 weighted and T2 fat suppression sequences, can be useful to confirm the ultrasound diagnosis.
