Varsha VK, Vasant Kattimani, Mamta S Kamat

Fibrolipoma is one of the infrequent variants of Lipoma characterized by distinctive features with both mature adipose cells and broad bands of intense fibrous connective tissue. It may be present at birth which is caused by an endocrinal imbalance, originate via the disintegration of a fibromatous tumor, arises from the maturation of lipoblastomatosis, and also due to repeated mild trauma which triggers the proliferation of fatty tissue. It has a diverse clinicopathologic and biologic entity with amplified growth potential but with a low recurrence rate.
