The aim of this study was to describe a possible variant of encephalo-craniocutaneous Lipomatosis syndrome. Three cases of congenital infiltrating lipomatosis of the face, associated with cutaneous, subcutaneous, and cerebral abnormalities: are presented. This neurocutaneous syndrome appears very similar to encephalo-craniocutaneous lipomatosis syndrome but lacks the typical eye lesions.
