Lipofibromatosis is a rare tumor of infancy, which has been reported about 10 years ago, and since then very few reports have been published. This tumor has been reported in association with congenital anomalies such as macrosyndactyly, but there is no report of multiple congenital anomalies with lipofibromatosis in the English literature as far as our knowledge goes. Herein, we report a case of this tumor associated with syndactyly, bilateral complete cleft lip and palate, trigonocephaly, and atrial septal defect.
