ABSTRACT: Lipoblastoma is a rare benign neoplasm found exclusively in the pediatric population that can occur anywhere in the body, most commonly seen in the extremities but also found in the face. We report an 8-month-old female subject who presented with multifocal soft tissue masses of the face. The diagnosis of lipoblastoma was made in 2 separate locations after surgical resection. Subsequent surgery was performed at the cheek site in an attempt to remove further mass, resulting in discovery of 2 other discrete tumors found to be lipoblastomas. Although the literature reports recurrence rates ranging from 14% to 27%, to our knowledge, aside from a case of Proteus syndrome, there are no known reports of multiple lipoblastomas in the literature. Presentation of the case, review of pertinent literature, and consideration of congenital infiltrative lipomatosis of the face follow.
