A 39-year-old man presented with a gradually progressive swelling on the left thigh of 5 years duration. There was no history of trauma prior to the onset of the lesion. On examination, a 3 × 2.5 cm polypoidal, pedunculated mass was seen over the left thigh. The skin over the swelling was thickened and wrinkled. No similar lesions were noticed elsewhere. There was no family history of similar lesions. The swelling was excised.

Grossly, the specimen consisted of a polypoidal skin covered soft tissue mass measuring 3 × 2.5 × 1 cm. The overlying skin was wrinkled and thickened [Figure 1]a. Cut surface of the lesion was yellowish [Figure 1]b. Histopathological examination revealed epidermis with mild hyperkeratosis. The dermis showed clusters of mature fat cells. Perivascular aggregates of mature adipocytes were also evident in the dermis. The lesion was not surrounded by capsule in any part [Figure 2]a and b.
