Özet

Hibernoma is a rare benign soft tissue tumor derived from brown fat. The tumor is also known as "fetal lipoma, lipoma of embryogenic fat and lipoma of immature adipose tissue. Hibernomas are slow-growing, painless soft tissue tumors which do not recur after surgical resection. Preferred locations are brown fat containing sites as thigh, interscapular region, shoulder, axilla, and mediastinum. The tumor occurs most commonly in adults, with a mean age of 38 years (age range, 2-75 years). We present a rare case of hibernoma with radiological and pathological findings.
