Done MRI. Diagnosed with a subcutaneous hemangioma on hip. Help?

My daughter was 1st diagnosed with a subcutaneous hemangioma on her left hip per an MRI . The 2nd diagnosis at ER was to have their radiologist re-read the MRI and they performed an ultrasound which indicated fat necrosis . My main question is whether it is possible to have is fat necrosis with no known trauma such as falls or such. We cannot think of anything she has done or an thing that might cause it. She is in a lot of pain

Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Fat necrosis without trauma can be due to cellulitis.
Need to rule out source of infection also find out depth and extent of the lesion . i .e. any rectal or anal canal infection which might have spread up to the buttock region.
please consult general surgeon .
