Lipoma of the large intestine is a rare, benign tumor. The clinical findings and the diagnostic studies are analysed and a case of giant submucosal colonic lipoma removed by colonoscopy is reported. Colonoscopic removal of submucosal lipomas is recommended, while the necessity of a surgical treatment in presence of intussusception or subserosal lipomas is confirmed.
