Lipomas are benign tumors that are considered the most common subcutaneous tumor. It is a tumor of mature fatty cells that can be classified according to its morphology, location and other features. It can affect all age groups. Areas of the head and neck are commonly involved with lipomas. Children are rarely involved and the involvement of parotid gland in children is extremely rare. Here we report a case of a simple lipoma in the deep lobe of the parotid gland in a two-year-old boy. It was managed by total parotidectomy. Follow up for one year shows no recurrence.
