Lipomas are benign mesenchymal tumours, which are composed of the fat cells of adult type. Lipomas have been identified in all age groups, but they are mostly seen between 40 and 60 years of age. They are usually solitary tumours, more common in females, most often located on the posterior neck and on the back, but they can also be multiple and small tumours all over the body and extremities. Anterior neck lipomas are rare. We report a case of a giant subcutaneous solitary lipoma of anterior neck in a 60-year-old male managed surgically.
