Lipofibromatous hamartoma is a rare fibro-fatty tumor. This capsulated tumor contains no neural elements. Lipofibroma acts like a benign tumor and may not show any activity for many years. Until 2010, only 88 cases are reported in the literatures. Here, we reported a 33-year-old male with a 10 mm × 30 mm × 40 mm lipofibromatous hamartoma in his left palm. All symptoms disappeared after the surgery.
