Nevus lipomatosus superficialis is a rare benign skin malformation characterised by ectopic adipocytes in the upper dermis. It is classified into two types: a classical Hoffman-Zurhelle type and the solitary type. A case of the classical type with multiple soft, non-tender, pedunculated, cerebriform, skin-coloured papules and nodules over the right lower back is presented in a 21-year-old Malay woman. She had a rare occurrence of ulceration and necrosis of the lesions.
