This condition most often presents during childhod, before the age of 7 years, afects males more than females, and is typified by a slowly growing, usually subcutaneous mass arising in the limbs. Cases involving the head and neck are extremely rare. Our case arose in a 44-month-old male presenting with a rapidly enlar--tion. We report one case of lipoblastoma in the neck with a review of the literature. (Korean J Otolaryngol 2002;45:93-5)
