Parosteal lipoma is a rare primary benign bone tumor demonstrating histopathologic features similar to those seen in the commonly occurring lipoma of soft tissue. Cytogenetic studies of soft tissue lipoma have demonstrated frequent abnormalities of 12q13–15. To the best of our knowledge the cytogenetic findings in parosteal lipoma have not yet been described. Cytogenetic analysis of a parosteal lipoma of the femur of a 51‐year‐old female revealed a t(3;12)(q28;q14), indicating that bone and soft tissue lipomas are cytogenetically similar and likely share a common histopathogenesis.
