Lipomas are the most common benign tumor of soft tissues. Lipomas are usually soft, fluctuant, painless, subcutaneous lump measuring from 2-20cm diameter. However conventional lipomas have been reported, lipoma of vulva is a rare occurrence and very few cases have been reported in literature. We present a case of vulvar lipoma in 58 year old woman.
