      Abstract

      We report a case of spontaneous expulsion of a lipoma in a 32 year old male patient who presented with recurrent attacks of subacute intestinal obstruction. During one such episode the patient developed unusually severe abdominal pain and expelled a fleshy mass per rectum which, on histopathology, was found to be a lipoma attached to a necrosed portion of the small intestine. The pain disappeared immediately; a subsequent barium meal examination revealed normal appearances and the patient has remained completely symptom free 10 months after the incident.
