Nevus lipomatosus cutaneus superficialis is very rare malformation consisting of multiple or solitary papules usually occuring on the lower trunk or glutesl regions. Microscopically it reveals groups of ectopic fat cell nests within the dermis. The authors observed two cases of typical nevus lipomatosus cutanes superficaialis. The first case was a 30-year-old female who has had asymptomatic, soft, skin colored and huge confluent tomor masses on the left buttock for 10 years; the second case was a 21-year-old male who has had multipel, soft, skin colored papules on the right buttock for 10 years. The author, made diagnosis of nevus lipomatosus cutaneus superficialis from characteristic clinical and histopathological findings. Related literature was briefly reviewed for the discussion.
