Lipoma of the ring finger in a young female: case report and review of literature

Mohit Kumar Arora, Ela Madaan

Abstract
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.
