A case of multiple lipomatosis exclusively located in the colon is reported in a young male (33 years). It is characterized by a great number of lipomas with polyposis growth appearance, multiple lipomas of peritoneal folds, and giant diverticulosis probably caused by weakened areas of colonic wall induced by the lipomas.
