RIQUELME, Edgard; AITKEN, Tomás; MARTINEZ, Benjamín  y  SAN MARTIN, Claudio. Giant Cervicofacial Lipoma: A Case Report. Int. j interdiscip. dent. [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.2, pp.181-183. ISSN 2452-5596.

Lipomas are benign neoplasms formed by mature adipose tissue and represent the most frequent mesenchymal tumors. Giant lipomas are defined in relation to a size greater than 10 centimeters or a weight greater than 1 kilogram. Their presentation at head and neck level is infrequent. They are characterized by having a slow, progressive, deforming and asymptomatic growth. Imaging tests are necessary for their correct anatomical location and the establishment of relationships with neighboring structures. The treatment of choice is surgical excision of the mass. Pre-surgical planning in this type of case must be meticulous to guarantee the preservation of both function and cervicofacial aesthetics. The case of a 50-year-old woman with a giant cervicofacial tumor of 9 years of evolution, diagnosed as lipoma, with its clinical, imaging, histopathological characteristics, and therapeutic management is reported.
