Congenital Infiltrating Lipomatosis of the Face
In 1983, Slavin et al. described a new entity termed “congenital infiltrating lipomatosis of the face” (CIL-F). It differs from the other lipomatosis in its exclusive facial location, its effects on adjacent structures, its congenital nature, and its precise histologic characteristics (Bouletreau et al. 2000).
