Abstract

Hibernoma is a rare, benign soft tissue tumor described in <200 case reports/case series. It is slow-growing, painless, and commonly mistaken for lipoma or liposarcoma. Histopathological diagnosis is must for confirmation. Total excision is the treatment of choice. We present a rare case of hibernoma of thigh, which was initially misdiagnosed as atypical lipomatous tumor/well-differentiated liposarcoma on imaging, which turned out to be a hibernoma on histopathological examination.
