Zhang et al, (15) in their study of 405 extremity-based lipomatous lesions, which included lipomas, intramuscular lipomas, and ALT/WDLs, evaluated cases diagnosed historically by histomorphology and then assessed their molecular status (MDM2 and CPM amplification status).
[3] According to Fugemann, the benign lipomatous tumors of this region can be further subclassified as solitary or multiple classic lipomas; infiltrating or intramuscular lipomas; hibernomas; lipoblastomas (socalled fetal lipomas); and diffuse lipomas in children.
Based on microscopical features they are classified into classic lipoma, fibro lipoma, angiolipoma, spindle cell lipoma, and pleomorphic, myxoid, sialolipoma, and intramuscular lipomas [3].
After correlating with the radiologic features, the diagnosis of intramuscular lipoma was made.
Intramuscular lipoma is a subtype of lipoma occurring in a deep location, typically in the large muscles of an extremity, such as the thigh and shoulder.
The differential diagnosis of intramuscular lipoma in this location, both radiologically and histologically, includes a hemangioma infiltrating skeletal muscle.
The treatment of intramuscular lipoma, in any location, is complete surgical excision.

Intramuscular lipomas arising specifically from the pectoralis muscle are exceedingly rare.
