Pleomorphic Lipoma of Foot- A Rare Case Report and its Literature Review

Lipomas are the most common soft tissue tumor found in adults and occur slightly more often in men than in women. Lipomas are uncommon in foot. Here we are discussing a case of 50 years old female presented with complaint of painless swelling over dorsolateral aspect of right foot for about 10 years. Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology was inconclusive. Swelling was excised under local anesthesia and histopathological examination proved it to be pleomorphic lipoma. A thorough review of literature was done emphasizing the rarity of this common tumor (lipoma) at this uncommon site (dorsum of foot).
