Congenital infiltrating lipomatosis of the face (CLIF) is a rare condition that is included in the subgroup of lipomatous tumor-like lesions. We present a rare case of CLIF in a 19-year-old male with clinical, imaging, and histopathological findings along with a review of the relevant literature. Our patient had a gradually progressive swelling on the left half of the face since childhood. Radiograph, computed tomography scan, and magnetic resonance imaging showed heterogeneous ill-defined fat-density lesion involving the left half of the face. Histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of CLIF. This diagnosis should be suspected on clinical examination and can be confirmed based on characteristic radiological findings. The patient should be kept under regular observation until the stabilization of bone growth, after which appropriate cosmetic surgery should be performed.
