Abstract The clinical findings and surgical management of a 58 years old woman with a large lipoma of the thigh are reported. Giant lipomas of the thigh, infrequently observed, are of interest because causing functional limitation and lymphedema, due to their tendency to recur after surgical removal and their potential hazard of malignant transformation. Specific diagnostic tools are discussed. Surgical excision is the first-choice treatment of a giant lipoma of the thigh.
