Abstract Subcutaneous fat necrosis of the newborn is an unusual form of panniculitis, with few cases described in medical literature. The disease affects newborns at term or post-term, with normal general health. We describe two cases of newborns affected by the disease. One of them already had lesions since birth. Also, we discuss the use of puncture for diagnostic assistance.

A Necrose Gordurosa Subcutânea do Recém-Nascido é uma paniculite incomum com poucos casos descritos na literatura médica. A doença acomete recém-nascidos a termo ou pós-termo, com saúde geral normal. Relatamos dois casos de recém-nascidos acometidos pela doença. Um deles já apresentava lesões ao nascer. Também discutimos o uso da punção para auxílio diagnóstico.
