Lipomas are mesenchymal neoplasms that can develop in all parts of the body which accounts for almost 50% of all soft-tissue tumours. We present a case, 40 year old male presenting with a large mass in the right axilla and right side of the chest wall following a blunt injury for 10 years duration. Due to his restricted movements, underwent surgery and diagnosed as Post traumatic pseudolipoma. The incidence of post-traumatic pseudolipoma is about 1%
