    Phosphatidylcholine was initially used in emergencies and in the treatment of atheroma plaques in
    cardiac diseases. Recently, it has also been used in the treatment of localized fat deposits. We
    report on the authors' clinical experience of the use of 250 mg/ml phosphatidylcholine injections in
    the treatment of subcutaneous fat deposits, showing the clinical response and side-effects.
    Volunteers received phosphatidylcholine injections in several areas of localized fat deposits, with
    a minimum interval of one week and mean interval of 15 days between applications. Laboratory tests
    were performed during the period of the drug use. Clinical results reflect that phosphatidylcholine
    was efficacious in reducing the fatty pads in the treated areas, with few side effects. From the
    authors' point of view, the off-label use of phosphatidylcholine in the treatment of fatty pads and
    small areas of localized fat is safe, low cost, and effective.
