Lipomas are common soft-tissue tumours that are usually found in the subcutaneous adipose tissue. Occasionally, they may contain mesenchymal elements other than adipose tissue, including osseous components. These ossifying lipomas are usually located near or within bone, and it is very rare for a lipoma with no connection to bone to contain mature osseous tissue. We describe a case of a symptomatic ossifying intramuscular lipoma of the thigh.
