OBJECTIVE. The objective of this article is to define the imaging characteristics of spindle cell lipoma on MRI and CT. CONCLUSION. The diagnosis of spindle cell lipoma should be suggested when a well-defined complex fatty mass is found in the subcutis of a middle-aged man, especially if the mass is localized to the posterior neck. Intense enhancement of the nonadipose component further supports this diagnosis.
