Abstract

It is extremely rare to observe ossifying lipoma that developes separately from bone tissues in the groin. A patient with an adult fist-sized, firm, non-movable and painless mass in the left groin area, had been treated with marginal excision, which turned out to be ossifying lipoma. Although many different variants of lipoma with bone tissue have been reported, a case like this has never previously been reported. It is important to distinguish ossifying lipoma, from tumors with calcific lesions. We report its uniqueness in radiologic and pathologic ways, with specific findings of ossifying lipoma.
