Abstract

We present the case of a 4-year-old boy with congenitally asymmetrical lower extremities, his left being bigger than his right. The patient underwent imaging modalities after birth; a huge lipomatoid proliferation on his left thigh extended throughout the limb from the hip to the distal foot, showing isointensity with lipoid tissue. After surgical resection of his left foot, fibrolipoma was diagnosed. A giant fibrolipoma of the whole extremity occurring in a pediatric patient is a rarity.
