Intraosseous lipoma (IL) is a rare benign bone lesion, and it constitutes about 0.1% of all bone tumors. The majority of cases are located in the metaphyseal region of the long bones in the lower limbs. We report a rare case of lipoma of the ilium in a 12-year-old male child presenting with mass over the right gluteal region. Meticulous marginal dissection was done, and a pedunculated mass originating from the lower right sacroiliac region was excised in toto. The case was an atypical example of an IL with a large outgrowth involving sacroiliac region with inconclusive magnetic resonance imaging and needle biopsy findings.
