Lipomas in the head and neck region usually occur in the immediate subcutaneous tissue. They are extremely rare under the muscular band of neck. We present a case of a 53-year-old woman with a subfascial lipoma located in the anterior lateral space of neck. The diagnosis of the lesion was reached by clinical examination and confirmed by ultrasonog- raphy (US) and computed tomography (CT) imaging. The lesion with surrounding capsule formation and lipofibromatous changes underwent open surgery.

Abstract

Lipomas in the head and neck region usually occur in the immediate subcutaneous tissue. They are extremely rare under the muscular band of neck. We present a case of a 53-year-old woman with a subfascial lipoma located in the anterior lateral space of neck. The diagnosis of the lesion was reached by clinical examination and confirmed by ultrasonog- raphy (US) and computed tomography (CT) imaging. The lesion with surrounding capsule formation and lipofibromatous changes underwent open surgery.
