Lipoma is very common mesenchymal tumor, accounting for approximately 16% of all these neoplasm. They arise in all parts of the body. Most lipomas are small, weighing only a few grams. Sanchez et al. defined the giant lipoma as a lesion that is at least 10 cm in one dimension or that weighs a minimum of 1000 g. In this study, we describe a case of unusual giant lipoma of the upper arm, weighing about 2150 g.
