Lipomas are common benign tumours but can present in unusual locations. The authors present the rare case of a pedunculated lipoma of the pinnal helix. The lipoma was excised with good cosmetic result. Lipoma of the cartilaginous pinnal helix is rare and has not been described previously in the literature.
