Abstract: Lipomas are benign tumours common at other sites but rare in the gastrointestinal tract. The colon is the commonest location for lipomas in the gastrointestinal tract, but gastric and duodenal lipomas are rare. Most of the lipomas are clinically silent but rarely they can present with bleeding or obstruction. Large lipomas causing obstruction can mimic malignant tumours clinically as well as on endoscopy. To rule out malignant lesion and avoid extensive surgical procedures biopsy or intraoperative frozen section is a must.
