A 38 male gestational age male neonate presented to us with a 5 × 4 cm soft tissue mass in the perineum with scrotal rugosities. It resembled male external genitalia, and a rudimentary phallus. in addition to an asymmetrical bifid scrotum [Figure 1]a. Magnetic resonance imaging of the pelvis showed a perineal subcutaneous lipoma posterior to the scrotum, suggestive of lipomatous hamartoma with accessory scrotum [Figure 1]b. Histology showed lobules composed of mature adipocytes in the dermis and subcutis [Figure 2]a.
