Abstract

Lipoblastoma is a benign soft-tissue tumour of infancy and early childhood. The location of the tumour varies from that of the extremities, trunk, retroperitoneum, mediastinal, inguinal and scrotal regions. The most common symptoms are painless mass with or without increasing size. Complete surgical excision is the gold standard for managing this entity. Though rare, the recurrence occurs usually because of incomplete excision. We report a case of recurrent lipoblastoma of the upper extremity in a 9-year-old boy.
