Haberland syndrome, also known as encephalocraniocutaneous lipomatosis, is a rare, congenital neurocutaneous disorder. It is characterized by unilateral central nervous system, cutaneous, and ocular anomalies. We report here a case of 28-year-old female presented with history of intermittent episodes of generalized tonic–clonic type convulsions for 3 years, soft lipomatous swelling over the right temporal area with nonscarring alopecia of the part of frontal and parietal region, and ipsilateral scleral dermoid. Computed tomography findings were lipomas and calcification of falx. Magnetic resonance imaging showed right-sided hemiatrophy, two intracranial cysts, and enlargement of the right lateral ventricle. We report this case because of its rarity.
