Abstract

Nevus lipomatosus cutaneous superficialis (NLCS) is a rare hamartomatous skin condition characterized by the presence of adipose tissue in the upper dermis. This condition is classified into classical multiple form and the solitary form based on clinical presentation. These lesions are present at birth or appear within the first three decades of life; however, solitary forms tend to occur later in life. Excision of these lesions is curative. Due to rarity of this entity, a high clinical suspicion is required for diagnosis of the same. We report a rare case of solitary NLCS presenting at birth.
