Abstract

Omental lipomas are extremely rare tumors of childhood. We report a case of solitary giant lipoma of the omentum in a child, successfully managed by complete excision, without any recurrence on follow-up study.


  • Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:
    For precise localization and characterization of omental lipomas, computed tomography should always be performed. Complete surgical excision is the treatment of choice for omental lipomas.
