Abstract

Spindle cell lipomas (SCLs) are a group of benign lipogenic tumours, typically arising in the posterior neck, upper back and shoulder of elderly male patients. Approximately 80% of these tumours arise in characteristic location, but 20% arise in unusual locations, thereby making these cases more difficult to diagnose. We present a case of SCL occurring in the right periorbital region of a 14-year-old boy. The MRI was suggestive of possible malignancy. Diagnosis of neurofibroma was made on incisional biopsy. However, the histopathological and immunohistochemical analyses of the excised lesion confirmed the diagnosis of SCL.
