Chondroid lipoma (CL), a rare lipoma variant, has not been described well for patients younger than 14 years of age. We herein report an extremely unusual instance of CL in a 7-year-old child. The cut surface of the tumor showed peculiar tan-brown and yellow-white areas. Histopathological sections showed the presence of eosinophilic variably vacuolated round- to oval-spindle cells in a myxo-hyaline background. The findings were consistent with CL. The case is reported because of its extreme rarity.
