A lipoma is a benign noninvasive encapsulated mesenchymal tumor that resembles normal fat. It is ubiquitous and the most common tumor to affect soft tissues. Although lipoma may arise from any tissue containing fat, omental lipoma is extremely rare. We report a case of a 38-year-old female with no known comorbidities presenting with early onset of satiety, abdominal distension and nausea for the past 6 months. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography showed a lipomatous lesion in the region of the greater omentum, which was treated by surgical resection.
