Parosteal lipomas and are described as surface osseous lipomas which are contiguous with the periosteum. They represent 15% of osseous lipomas and most occur in the fifth and sixth decades with a slight male predilection. To date, only 150 of these tumors have been reported in the literature. We present a rare case of Parosteal lipoma with cytogenetic correlation. The clinical implications of this lesion will also be discussed.
