Lipomata in the stomach wall are extremely rare; they may arise from the submucous tissue and project into the cavity of the stomach, or from the subserous coat and project into the peritoneal cavity.

In Virchow's work (Die Kraiikhaft.Geschwulste) is figured a lipoma arising in the submucous tissues near the pylorus.

If diagnosed, these tumours can be readily removed by enucleation.

A case of lipo-myoma has been reported by Kunze(6), who removed it from a man aged fifty-two years, it having been diagnosed as a mesenteric tumour.
