ABSTRACT

Lipomas are a very common mesenchymal benign tumors, they can be subcutaneous or subfascial,[1] mostly small, they can grow in size weighing up to 200grams, giant lipomas however are rare and should be differentiated from liposarcomas, computed tomography(CT), Ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), biopsy and/or immunohistochemistry can help in differentiating the two entities. The authors report the case of a 57 years old woman who was referred to our department due to the presence of a mass growing on the inner thigh of the right limb over the course of 5 years, increasing in size steadily and causing pain and discomfort, ultimately responsible for functional impotence. CT scanning and MRI were performed suggesting the adiposic nature of the tumor, confirmed later by a biopsy, tumor resection was performed shortly afterward.
