Abstract: Infiltrating lipomatosis of the face is a rare disorder in which mature adipocytes infiltrate tissues, leading to facial asymmetry. We present three cases, emphasizing their clinical and imaging features. In two of our cases, typical clinical features of infiltrating lipomatosis of the face were observed, including enlargement of cheek and bones, as well as early tooth eruption. The other case stood out because of its uncommon clinical presentation: presenting with hemimacroglossia, ipsilateral submandibular gland enlargement, and papillomatosis on the dorsum of the tongue. The presence of infiltrating adipose tissue is essential to confirm the diagnosis.
