Spindle cell/pleomorphic lipoma is an infrequently seen benign adipose tissue tumor. This tumor, mostly arising from the subcutaneous tissue, usually affects male patients and occurs in back, shoulders, head and neck area. It is rarely localized to dermis. Cutaneous spindle cell/pleomorphic lipoma differs from its subcutaneous counterpart by wider anatomical distribution, female predilection and infiltrative margins. We here present a pedunculated type, cutaneous pleomorphic lipoma case localized to the nasolabial region of 59-year-old man.
