ABSTRACT: Two cases of multiple dermal lipomas were found in cultured striped seabream Lithognathus mormyrus (L.) from the southeast coast of Spain. A histopathological study suggests that pigmented cells may correspond to melanomacrophage aggregates. The presence of these aggregations is likely related to the occurrence of a pathological process of tumoral nature.
