Abstract:   (8842 Views)
Horse shoe shaped lipoma of the upper extremity is a very rare entity. We present a case of 45 years old female who presented with painless progressive swelling over the distal forearm and tingling and numbness over the ulnar nerve territory. MRI and surgical exploration showed a horse shoe shaped multilobulated lipoma encasing the distal ulna. The mass was excised in toto, and the sensory alterations were completely relieved at three months follow up. We would like to highlight this rare occurrence of a horse shoe lipoma and present a detailed history of this case to increase awareness amongst clinicians regarding this condition.
