Rare Case of Pancreatic Lipoma Diagnosed Incidentally on CT Scan and Its Review of Literature

The first histopathologically confirmed case of pancreatic lipoma (located in the head) was published in 1989 by Bilard . Mesenchymal tumours, among others lipomas, constitute 1% of all pancreatic tumours. The rarest are those which include fatty tissue (lipoma, liposarcoma). The majority of lipomas have characteristic features visible during imaging which allow their differentiation from other lesions. Identification of such features together with the lack of clinical symptoms allow, in most cases, correct diagnosis without the necessity ofhistopathologic confirmation
