Fatih Özden, Özgür Nadiye Karaman, Emine Aslan Telci

Lipomas are defined as a benign tumour of adipose tissue. It is the most common form of mesenchymal tumours and has a soft, mostly round shape, and can be seen in small and sometimes giant forms in any part of the human body, usually subcutaneously. We report a moderate to giant diameter lipoma localized in the supraclavicular region which caused to a brachial plexus injury. The unique features of this case report are the elaboration of the clinical parameters of this rare condition, especially the physical condition described in detail after physical therapy sessions. Lipoma-induced Brachial Plexus Injury and its treatment results have not been discussed before in the literature.
