Abstract: The condition affects patients in the 20-50 years bracket and is more prevalent in African-Americas. Here, we present a case of obstructive uropathy and chronic constipation secondary to pelvic lipomatosis.Summary: Pelvic lipomatosis is a rare disease of unknown etiology, characterized by the overgrowth of pelvic adipose tissue that causes compression of the urinary tract including the bladder and ureters, rectum, and blood vessels. The patient may progressively develop obstructive uropathy which could subsequently lead to renal failure. (1, 2). References: 1. E. P. Engels.
