Abstract

An intraosseous lipoma is considered one of the rarest primary bone tumors. The etiology of this lesion remains unclear; many lesions are asymptomatic and appear only as incidental findings during routine radiographic evaluations. Magnetic resonance imaging of intraosseous lipomas can help to establish a diagnosis and to stage the neoplasm. This is a case report of a 53-year old man with a rare intraosseous lipoma of the patella.
