||This article describes the characteristics of semicircular lipoatrophy and presents the experience drawn from all reported cases in Barcelona in 2007 and early 2008 and the preventive measures taken. Semicircular lipoatrophy is a reversible atrophic lesion of the adipose tissue, which in most cases affects the antero-lateral zone of the thigh and is mainly occupation-related. In enterprises where preventive measures have been taken, improvements or complete recoveries were observed. The Catalan administration has published an action protocol in order to unify procedures in enterprises and in occupational safety and health services.
