Lipomas are common benign adipose tumors generally located at superficial locations. Mostly they measure a few centimeters in size; however, giant lipomas measuring more than 10 cm in size or weighing 1000 g are also seen. Deep seated lipomas are rather infrequent out of which retroperitoneal location of giant lipoma is rare. Fibrolipoma is one of the uncommon variant of lipomas. A giant retroperitoneal fibrolipoma is extremely rare and only five case reports of such tumors are there in the literature. We herein present one such case in a 36-years-old female.
