Haberland Syndrome


Encephalocraniocutaneous lipomatosis (ECCL) is a rare, congenital, neurocutaneous disorder with unilateral lipomatous cutaneous neoplasms devoid of hair and ipsilateral ophthalmologic and neurologic malformations. Haberland and Perou first described the disorder in 1970 in the clinical and necropsy findings of a 51-year-old man who has epilepsy and mental retardation.
They suggested that the man had a previously unreported neurocutaneous syndrome, which they termed encephalocraniocutaneous lipomatosis. In reports, the reporting authors termed the syndrome Haberland syndrome, from the names of the original authors. Approximately 60 cases have been delineated since 1970. Encephalocraniocutaneous lipomatosis has also become known under the term Fishman syndrome.
