Giant omental lipoblastoma in a 10-month-old infant composing 20% of total body weight
ABSTRACT Lipoblastoma of the greater omentum is an extremely rare benign tumor with less than 10 cases reported in the available literature. We report an unusual case of a 10-month-old girl with a giant omental lipoblastoma that composed 20% of her total body weight (1480 g, 17 x 12 x 16 cm). Complete excision of the tumor was performed. Histology confirmed the diagnosis of omental lipoblastoma.

ABSTRACT: Adipose tumors are rare in pediatric age and are commonly represented by benign forms: lipoma and lipoblastoma/lipoblastomatosis. Generally localized in subcutaneous tissue of the trunk and extremities, they can exceptionally occur as giant intra-peritoneal or pelvic masses. These tumors could reach considerable size prior to diagnosis since they are asymptomatic. The authors report a case series of three giant abdomino-pelvic adipose tumors.Pediatric Surgery International 08/2011; 28(1):89-93. DOI:10.1007/s00383-011-2971-8 · 1.06 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: Although lipoma is a common benign mesenchymal tumor, its occurrence in the omentum is a rare finding. We report an unusual case of omental lipoma in a 13-year-old adolescent girl. The mass was completely excised and weighed 12.3 kg. The patient is alive and well with no evidence of recurrence at 4 months of follow-up.Journal of Pediatric Surgery 11/2009; 44(11):2230-2.
