Liver lipoma is an extremely rare tumor. Its nature and behavior is not well-known since available information is based mostly on the individual case reports. This report presents a case of liver lipoma mimicking malignant liver tumor. Patient was a 76-year-old female patient with 5-month history of the right upper abdominal quadrant pain. Diagnostic work-up revealed a large liver tumor mass, suspicious of malignancy. However, histopathological analysis found it to be benign lipoma. Because of extremely low incidence of liver lipoma, especially large ones, appropriate diagnostic work-up is very important for its differentiation from malignant tumors.
