We report a case of a
37-year-old Japanese female. She had a Tessier no. 8 craniofacial cleft and an
orbital lipoma in the lateral canthal region. Excisional surgery and
pathological examination revealed a genuine lipoma. No other case has been
reported in the literature. Here, we present our case of a rare genuine lipoma
located in lateral canthal region of the Tessier no. 8 cleft.
