Lipoma is a common benign soft tissue tumor. It may arise in any location, but most frequently it is located on the trunk, chest, upper thigh, upper arm, and shoulder. Reports of a lipoma in the foot exist, but the occurrence of the tumor in this location is very rare. Lipomas of the toe have only been reported in children, some imitating or having associated gigantism. We present a benign lipoma occurring on the plantar aspect of the second toe in an adult.
