The postoperative histopathologic examination of the patient who was operated with the preliminary diagnosis of intrathoracic extrapulmonary chest wall tumor was reported as an infiltrative angiolipoma. In this article, we present a 35-year-old female case with an infiltrating angiolipoma, as no similar case is present in the literature and we think it is rarely seen.
