Abstract

Giant lipomas affecting the retroperitoneum and pelvis are quite rare. The surgical management of these lesions may be technically demanding and controversies exist with respect to diagnosis, competences being involved, type of surgical approach, radicality, and timing. A unique case presentation of a giant lipoma occupying the whole pelvis and the gluteal region is presented. Due to its size, many anatomical areas are involved, requiring the expertise of multiple specialists to treat. After multidisciplinary counseling, the lesion is radically resected in one stage by using a new videolaparoscopically assisted transperineal access to the pelvis. This type of surgical approach may be of interest for resecting pelvic tumors in women and men.
