Giant lipomas are benign soft tissue tumors found rarely in the neck and are still rarer in the anterior part of the neck. A 70-year-old male patient was presented with a huge swelling measuring 35 cm in maximum dimension, in the front of the neck, reaching up till the umbilicus. The swelling was painless, slow growing and acquired the huge size in approximately 20 years. Ultrasound and CT scan findings were suggestive of a soft tissue lesion. Fine needle aspiration cytology yielded mature adipose tissue fragments. A complete surgical removal of the mass was done which on gross examination, measured 32 cms in longest diameter and weighed 2500 grams. Diagnosis of giant anterior neck lipoma with pressure ulcer was confirmed on histopathology. We described a case of excessively large lipoma of anterior neck, which is the largest anterior neck lipoma with pressure ulcer reported till date.
