Centrifugal lipodystrophy is a rare acquired localized lipodistrophy characterized by single or occasionally multiple centrifugally progressive asymptomatic to sometimes mildly tender hypopigmented lipoatrophic skin depressions with weakly erymatheous inflammatory borders typically associated with regional ipsilateral lymph nodes swelling.

It is usually not associated with systemic disease and is typically self-resolving.
