Pleomorphic lipoma occur in adults and are more common in males.
These are located on the back of the neck, upper back or shoulders.
These tumours usually present as a solitary, painless, slow growing, lobular mass with an average diameter of 5 cms. Rarely multiple lesions may develop.
Cut surface has a yellow or grayish – yellow colour. Sometimes mucoid areas are present.
There are overlapping features with spindle cell lipoma.
This tumour should not be mistaken for a liposarcoma.
