Lipoblastoma and lipoblastomatosis are benign adipocytic tumors seen in children less than 3 years of age. Awareness amongst surgeons of this fast growing lipomatous tumor in young children is important to avoid mutilating surgery and chemotherapy. Histological diagnosis of lipoblastoma is sometimes difficult because of close resemblance with myxoid, round cell, and well-differentiated liposarcoma. We came across a series of six cases of lipoblastoma/lipoblastomatosis, over the last 10 years (2002–2012). Of these, we had three cases of lipoblastomatosis, one of which recurred after 2 months. All others were resected completely and successfully.
