Lipoblastoma can arise almost anywhere within the soft tissues, especially in the extremities. It is rarely seen retroperitoneally. A 3-year-old girl presented with a palpable abdominal mass underwent an exploratory laparotomy with resection of the retroperitoneal mass. Based on histopathologic and cytogenetic features, a final diagnosis of lipoblastoma was rendered. At 18-month follow-up, she had no evidence of recurrence.
