A case of an intermittently expanding lesion occurring after muscular effort and exercise and disappearing with rest, which proved on surgery to be a lipo-hibernoma, has been presented. A seven-year clinical follow-up confirms no recurrence of this tumor. Physicians are advised to examine patients who complain of such intermittent lesions at the time when the lesion is apparent and if no obvious explanation is available, one should entertain exploratory surgery.
