Lipoblastoma is a rare, benign, soft tissue neoplasm most commonly seen in children less than 3 years. It is usually seen on the trunk and on the limbs and rarely in the head and neck. In our case, a child of age 1 year and 3months presented with a swelling over the nape of the neck. The swelling had rapidly increased in size and was associated with difficulty in neck movements. Intraoperatively it was found to have very minimal adhesions to the underlying muscles of neck. Histopathological examination confirmed it to be a lipoblastoma. The swelling was removed by wide excision, and there was no postoperative complication.
