Giant cervical lipoma invading carotid artery: a case report

Alper Tunga Derin1, Kenan Güney, Murat Turhan, Abdullah Erdoğan, Bülent V. Ağırdır

Lipomas are one of the most frequently encountered
benign tumors in any location. There is limited information
about head and neck lipomas in the litetature
and most data is in the form of case reports. Lipomas
can rarely reach gigantic sizes and can invade surrounding
tissues, especially skeletal muscles, and in
this case they are called infiltrating lipomas. In this
manuscript we report a case of cervical giant lipoma
surrounding and infiltrating the common carotid
artery which was treated by grafting carotid artery,
and our diagnostic work-up and treatment procedure
are discussed in the light of the literature

Keywords: Carotid grafting; giant lipoma; infiltratinglipoma; neck.
