Lipoblastoma is a relatively rare tumor that occurs in infancy and early childhood which arises from embryonic fat. It occurs mostly in trunk and extremities, but abdomen and pelvic lipoblastomas are rare. It presents as a mass with or without mass effect. Computed tomography/magnetic resonance imaging of the abdomen with pelvis is the investigation of choice. We present two cases of pelvic lipoblastoma with extension in ischiorectal fossa and the intra-abdominal lipoblastoma which were excised completely by laparoscopy. We are reporting these cases because of rarity of the disease and feasibility of complete laparoscopic excision.
