A 25-year-old male presented with asymptomatic, slowly progressive, giant swelling over the right lower back since last 4 years. There was no history of any locoregional or systemic complications. Mucocutaneous examination revealed single, well-defined, firm, protuberant, swelling of size 20 × 10 cm with very prominent cerebriform surface over the right lower back. There were discrete areas of darker pigmentation over the surface of the plaque. The plaque had a close resemblance to the brain (cerebriform) in form of very deep as well as superficial sulci and gyri [Figure 1]a. Lesion started as a single lump and gradually increased in size over the past 4 years. Systemic and other mucocutaneous examinations were within normal limits. Histopathology showed mature adipocytes in the upper, mid, and deep dermis in the perivascular and periadnexal location and between the collagen bundles [Figure 1]b and [Figure 1]c.
