Lipomas are the most common benign tumour of mesenchymal origin. They arise in any location where fat usually is present. Only 13% of lipomas are seen in the head and neck region, and the most common site is the posterior triangle. Deep-seated intramuscular chest wall lipomas are rarer than superficial lipomas. We present two cases of lipoma in rare locations, one in the right lateral thoracic wall with a deep attachment to the external intercostal muscles and the other in the left supraclavicular fossa with deep extensions.
