In this paper we generalize Huber’s result on complete surfaces of finite total curvature. For complete locally conformally flat 4-manifolds of positive scalar curvature with Q curvature integrable, where Q is a variant of the Chern-Gauss-Bonnet integrand; we first derive the Cohn-Vossen inequality. We then establish finiteness of the topology. This allows us to provide conformal compactification of such manifolds.
