A 45 year old male presented with a large yellowish irregular surfaced tumour of 5 years duration, situated over lower back. There were comedo like lesions over it and a few nodules on top showed necrosis. A diagnosis of naevus lipomatosus superficialis was made.

Late appearance, large size, extension beyond midline, comedolike lesions were some unusual features observed in this rare disorder.
