Abstract

Nevus lipomatous cutaneous superficialis is an uncommon condition consisting of ectopic adipose tissue in the dermis and usually located in the pelvic region. There are 2 clinical variants. The first type is the multiple lesions of zonal distribution, present from birth or childhood, usually on the buttocks or the lower back. Sometimes coalescence of papules tend to form cerebriform plaques. The second type is a dome or sessile, papule, nodule with less restricted tendency in its distribution. We describe a 35-year- old female patient who had a soft, asymptomatic, skin colored cerebriform mass which gradually increased in size. Diagnosis was confirmed by clinical and histopathological findings. Treatment was made by excision and primary closure.
