HY Wong, YK Ng, EKW Chan, KH Lee


Abstract

Lipoblastoma is a rare benign mesenchymal tumours arising from embryonal white fat and most often encountered on trunk and extremities. We report a case of lipoblastoma of the scalp in a 3-month-old boy with review of the literature. This is to our knowledge the second case of lipoblastoma of the scalp reported in published literature in English. Here we illustrate the diagnostic challenge of lipoblastoma of infancy.
