Common tumour, uncommon presentation: massive lipoma in the retroperitoneum

Krishna Kumar Govindarajan, Shiju K. Sreepathy, Bhawana Badhe, Ramesh Ananthakrishnan

Abstract


Retroperitoneal masses are notoriously malignant. Although they are seen commonly in adults, they have been known to occur in children as well. A benign mass in the retroperitoneal location in children is uncommon. Here we describe the presentation and management of a rare benign retroperitoneal mass in a 12-year-old boy.

Keywords: abdominal mass, lipoma, paediatric tumours, retroperitoneal mass
