In 1975, Mehregan et al (1) proposed the term pedunculated lipofibroma for the solitary form of NLCS in the view of its distinctive clinicopathologic features. Subsequently, Nogita et al reported and reviewed 32 cases of pedunculated lipofibroma in 1994. Pedunculated lipofibroma is a relatively rare form of benign connective tissue proliferation abnormality characterized by ectopic adipose tissue in the dermis. We observed a case of pedunculated lipofibroma with a prominent stalk containing feeding vessels, a history of congenital onset, a remarkable globular apple-shaped mass and an accompanying small sessile lesion. We report this case with a review of the literature.
