Benign soft tissue neoplasms commonly occur in oral cavity. Lipoma is one such benign tumour which rarely occurs in the oral mucosa. About 20% of lipomas occur in the head and neck region among which oral lipomas comprise only 1-4% of all lipomas. They slowly enlarge and they are known to grow to large sizes, thus causing mastication and speech difficulties. Usually, the lesion consists of a well circumscribed, lobulated mass of mature fat cells. Oral lipomas are usually asymptomatic, but in some situations, the covering mucosa becomes ulcerated and it presents difficulties in diagnosis. Here with, the present paper reports a rare case of intaoral lipoma in a 53-year-old female patient.
