Dermolipomas are congenital solid choristomas usually located in the superotemporal fornix, near the lacrimal gland and lateral rectus muscle. Retrospective analysis of four consecutive cases of dermolipoma reported between Jan 1994 and July 2005 was done. Three cases were males and one was female and in all the cases swelling was first noted in the early childhood. Histologically they show squamous epithelium lined tissue containing mature adipose tissue in addition to bundles of dense collagen and adnexal structures which were present in all our cases. Surgical excision of dermolipoma is conservative and confined to the irritating dermal surface or the visible portion of the lesion.
