Chest wall lipoblastoma in a 3 year-old boy
Lipoblastoma is a rare, benign, fatty tissue tumor that occurs in infancy and early childhood. The most common tumor locations are the extremities and the torso. The location of this tumor in the chest wall and an intrathoracic extension is uncommon.

Published in the Respiratory Medicine Case Reports, the authors present a case of a 3-year-old boy with anterior chest wall lipoblastoma with an intrathoracic extension.

CT was suggestive of lipoblastoma. The mass was completely excised through a right posterolateral thoracotomy. The histologic examination of the lesion confirmed the diagnosis of lipoblastoma.

Key takeaway:-
Although extremely rare, chest wall lipoblastoma should be included in the differential diagnosis of thoracic mass in childhood.
