Lipoma is a benign tumour composed of well-differentiated adipocytes and is the most common soft tissue mass. We present a case of an intraluminal lipoma of the iliofemoral axis presenting as lower limb venous obstruction. In our case, definite diagnosis is impossible as there is aspecific symptomatology and radiologic imaging methods are not able to provide diriment data, considering rarity of the disease. Therefore, we could make correct diagnosis only intraoperatively. We preferred a direct reconstruction of the wall of vein. At 12-month follow-up, we have had complete disappearance of symptoms and functional diseases.
