Giant lipomas are rare benign neoformations. Initially, differential diagnosis has to be made with malignant lesions presenting a much worse prognosis, such as liposarcomas. A definitive non-invasive diagnosis is, however, often impossible. Radical surgical removal is therefore the therapeutic approach of choice. A clinical case of particular interest for the rare anatomical localisation and the considerable dimensions of the neoformation is reported.
