Colonic lipomas are uncommon neoplasms. These tumors rarely produce symptoms. However, we encountered a middle-aged man presenting with features of acute intestinal obstruction. On laparotomy, a hard, irregular mass was identified at splenic flexure. Histological evaluation proved the mass to be a submucosal lipoma. We are presenting this case along with relevant discussions to underscore the fact that colonic lipomas can present as acute abdomen.
