We describe an unusual case of multiple symmetric lipomatosis (MSL) that presented with severe polyneuropathy, and review the literature. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first description of polyneuropathy as the presenting sign of MSL and the first report of this syndrome in Israel. MSL has to be included in the differential diagnosis of unexplained polyneuropathy.
