Lipogenic tumors are an uncommon entity in children. There are several variants of lipoma, of which spindle cell lipoma is an extremely rare and accounts for only 1.5% of all lipoma diagnosis. Spindle cell lipoma rarely involves distal extremities. We report a 4-year old boy with swelling over dorsum of hand operated for aesthetic purposes. The report also highlights the salient cytological features, which can help differentiate this entity from other closer mimics on aspiration cytology, guiding the surgeon for appropriate management.
