Infiltrating lipomas are rare benign tumors. Several cases have previously been reported in the oral cavity but only three cases have been reported to date in children. We report a case of a 7-year-old child with an infiltrating lipoma of the neck and a posterior extension to the fourth and fifth cervical roots and the vertebral artery. The absence of any neurological signs, negative clinical and radiological examination results, as well as, the surgical risk of total removal and high rate of recurrence suggested a period of watchful waiting. After 5 years, the patient's clinical and radiological characteristics remain stable. A review of the literature regarding this pathology in the head and neck area, in both children and adults is also presented.
