Lipoblastoma is a rare benign tumor occuring in infancy and early childhood. It is usually located on the extremities but can be found anywhere on the body. Normally, it is well capsulated, but when it is multicentric in origin and diffused in nature it is known as lipoblastomatosis. We report a case of a 1-year-old boy who presented with a huge swelling on the back that, on postoperative histological examination, was diagnosed as lipoblastoma.
