Abstract
Lipomas are benign tumors which commonly occur in the back, shoulder, and neck. These tumors very rarely involve the hand and even are rarer in the digits. We report a case of a recurrent lipoma of the index finger in a 42-year-old woman. A 42-year-old female patient presented to us with complaints of a recurrent swelling of her index finger for two years. The swelling was excised twice before in her native country, but the swelling recurred. Clinical examination, radiographs, and MRI were used to come to a diagnosis of lipoma. The mass was surgically excised. The patient was followed up for one year with no recurrence. Lipomas of the finger are extremely rare. Adequate surgical dissection and complete excision usually yield successful outcomes.

Key words: Lipoma, recurrent swelling, tumors, hand
