Naevus lipomatosus cutaneous superficialis (NLCS) is an uncommon idiopathic hamartomatous condition characterised by groups of mature fat cells situated within the dermis. There are two types: the classical type as first described by Hoffmann and Zurhelle consists of multiple, soft, non-tender skin coloured to yellow papules and nodules which often coalesce to form plaques. The solitary type consists of solitary dome-shaped papule or nodule. We report two cases of classical type of NLCS which had varying clinical features and characteristic histopathological features.
