Abdominal lipomas are benign mesenchymal tumors of mature fatty tissue that may appear at any age. We present the case of a 58-year-old patient with a cardiovascular pathology, who presented with diffuse abdominal pains, asthenia, anterior thorax pains and palpitations, abdomen increase, symptoms that had an insidious onset. The clinical and imagistic examinations suggested the diagnosis of giant abdominal lipoma. The surgical intervention allowed the excision of an encapsulated tumor, of 250/220/230 mm, relatively well encapsulated, with a macroscopic aspect of section adipose tissue, with hard whitish areas, with a 12.3 kg weight. The histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of lipofibroma.
