Lipoma - Skin in Child
The clinical variants of lipoma are nevus lipomatosus superficialis, angiolipomas, and many others.
In lipomatosis, numerous lipomas can occur in subcutaneous tissue. Familial lipomatosis occurs in adulthood. Lipomatoses in children include Proteus syndrome, Bannayan-Riley-Ruvalcaba syndrome, and encephalocraniocutaneous lipomatosis.

- Neurofibroma – Soft flesh-colored papule or papulonodule that can be moved in lateral (side to side) but not along the direction of the nerve. The pathognomonic "buttonhole" sign is positive.
- There is no overlying skin change, nor are there ostia or dilated pores as would be seen in an epidermoid cyst.
- Cysts are usually firmer and more superficial.
- Metastatic malignancy is usually much firmer to the touch.
- Dermoid cyst
- Hibernomas (brown fat) – These are often large, persistent lipomatous lesions on the neck, back, or axilla. Biopsy is necessary for definitive diagnosis.
- Abscess – One would expect to see accompanying erythema and induration.
- Blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome
