Case of the Week
This lipoblastoma was encountered in a young adult but has nearly completely "matured" to a lobulated lipoma with only focal changes of lipoblastoma. The PLAG1 immunohistochemical stain is reassuring in light of the older age of the patient since lipoblastomas are generally lesions of babies and toddlers.
