Sunita Singh, Divya Srivastav, Renuka Verma, Megha Ralli, Ashok Sangwaiya.

Lipoma arises from adipocytes. Lipomas are benign, slow growing tumors, and are generally found in subcutaneous tissue of the proximal extremities and trunk. The gastrointestinal (GI) tract is an uncommon localization for lipoma, but if found; their most common localization is the colon. We report a case of lipoma located in small intestine in a patient presenting with perforation peritonitis.
