Retroperitoneal lipomas have remained the essentially rare tumors seen in clinical practice. The tumors are rarer in children, with very few reported cases in surgical literature worldwide. We report the case of a 5-year-old child who presented with a giant retroperitoneal lipoma that was successfully managed by complete excision. There has been no recurrence noticed during follow-up. We present a rare case of giant retroperitoneal lipoma in a child. At laparotomy, a giant lipoma weighing about 6 kg was excised.
