Angiolipoma (AL), a subtype of lipoma, is a rare benign mesenchymal tumour. It is common in the extremities with rare occurrence in the oral cavity. In this case report, we present a case of non-infiltrating type of angiolipoma present in the buccal mucosa which was surgically excised under local anaesthesia and the specimen was histopathologically examined. The histopathological examination revealed mature adipocytes arranged in sheets separated by thin fibrous connective tissue with interspersed vessels.
