Hibernoma is a rare benign adypocyte tumour of brown fat. We report on 4 patients with hibernoma of the thigh. Clinical features and magnetic resonance imaging suggested the tumours were liposarcomas, but biopsy yielded the diagnosis of hibernoma. All 4 patients underwent complete excision of the tumour and had no recurrence.
