Lipoblastomas and lipoblastomatosis are very rare benign tumors arising from embryonal fat cells. They mainly occurs in children less than 3 years of age with the male preponderance. These tumors usually arise in the extremities and present as painless soft mass. Even though there are no metastasis reported, recurrences are known after excision. Therefore a follow up period of at least 3 years is recommended.

Key words: lipoblastoma, children, benign tumor
