We report the case of a male child aged 3 years who was consulted for a right deviated neck tumor, movable with the superficial plane and fixed with the deep plane, measuring 8 cm in length. It was firm, painless, without associated inflammatory signs (A), Cervical scan showed a tumoral process of the right nuchal parts, lobulated contour, with double fatty component containing fine partitions and tissue enhanced after injection of iodinated contrast (ICP), measuring 50*43*55mm in diameter (B), Patient admitted to the operating room: posterior transverse incision of the neck. Surgical exploration revealed an encapsulated mass very much adherent to the different musculoaponeurotic planes that it was pushing back without invading them. The mass was completely resected without capsular opening, following the cleavage planes between it and the planes (C). It measured 6.5 cm in length and contained several fatty lobules grouped in clusters (D). Anatomopathological examination confirmed a lipoblastoma.
