fatty tissue in the brain

My cousin was recently diagnosed with fatty tissue deep in her brain.  She was having double, triple even quadruple vision.  Several tests were taken and this is what they found.  The doctors don't seem to know what to do for it because they say it is so deep in the brain.  Does anyone out there have a similar problem or diagnosis and how is it being treated?

Hello.

Can you confirm if the fatty tissue (mostly, lipoma) is in the brainstem region, or in the deep white matter? If it is in the brainstem region, it can actually be surgically removed by microsurgical techniques.
