ABSTRACT
Congenital infiltrating lipomatosis of the face is a rare condition characterized by diffuse fatty infiltration of the facial soft tissues. There may be muscle involvement along with associated bony hyperplasia. It is a type of lipomatous tumor that is congenital in origin; it is rare and seen usually in childhood. We recently saw an 11-year-old girl with this condition. She presented with a swelling of the right side of the face that had been present since birth; there were typical findings on plain radiographs, CT, and MRI. The patient underwent cosmetic surgery. Histopathological examination showed mature adipocytes without any capsule.

Figure 0002: Plain frontal radiograph shows sclerosis of the right frontal and zygomatic bones

Mentions: Frontal skull radiographs [Figure 2] showed increased density of the right orbital and frontal bones. CT scan showed an ill-defined, inhomogeneous, fat-density infiltrative lesion involving the superficial as well as deep planes of the right hemiface and upper neck. The masticator, parapharyngeal, submandibular, and sublingual spaces on the right side were involved [Figure 3A]. The subcutaneous, muscular, and intermuscular planes were involved. The tongue and palate were also involved on the right side. The right orbital, maxillary, zygomatic, and frontal bones were thickened [Figures 3B and C].
