Progress in Orthopedic Science. 2016;
Lipomas are benign, mesenchymal neoplasms occurring in areas of abundant adipose tissue. They can be found anywhere in the body with approximately 15-20 % located in head and neck region and the majority of rest in the shoulder and back. They are uncommon in hand and even rare in fingers. We report a case of lipoma in 22 year old female who presented to us with a painless swelling. Surgical excision was done. Lipoma should always be kept in the list of differential diagnosis. Complete resection should be done to prevent recurrence.
