Giant infiltrating lipoma of thigh, infrequently observed. Subcutaneous and gastrointestinal lipomas are not infrequently encountered, but huge, encapsulated or infiltrating lipomas of the thigh are rarely observed. They are of interest because causing functional limitation and due to their tendency to recur after surgical removal and their potential hazard of malignant transformation. The clinical findings and surgical management of a 72 year old man with a large infiltrating lipoma of thigh are reported here. [Int J Res Med Sci 2013; 1(4.000): 581-583]
