Spindle cell lipoma is a relatively rare adipocytic neoplasm, which usually occurs in the posterior neck, shoulder or upper back of male patients aged 45-65 years. We report here an unusual coexistence of ordinary and spindle cell lipoma. The patient presented with a painless mass in the area of the right scapula. Imaging was suggestive of a lipomatous mass, possibly liposarcoma. Histological examination revealed the concurrent existence of an intramuscular spindle cell lipoma and an ordinary lipoma. In the literature there are only fourteen cases of intramuscular spindle cell lipoma and only in four cases there was a coexisting mature lipoma. As exclusion of malignancy remains clinicians main concern,diagnosis and treatment of deep seated lipomatous tumors remains challenging
