ABSTRACT
Lipomas are rare in oral and maxillofacial regions although they are the most common tumours of mesenchymal origin in human body. The etiology remains unclear. Various different theories explain the pathogenesis of this adipose tissue tumour and also different histological variants of oral lipoma have been given in literature. A case of intraoral lipoma occurring in mental region in a 77-year-old male is reported along with review of the literature. Wide surgical excision was performed and two-year followup showed excellent healing without any recurrence. Lipomas are benign soft tissue neoplasm of mature adipose tissue seen as a common entity in the head and neck region. Intraoral lipomas are a rare entity which may be noticed only during routine dental examinations. Most of them rarely cause pain, resulting in delay to seek treatment. It is mandatory for a clinician to diagnose intraoral lipomas using latest diagnostic methods and conservatively treat them without causing much discomfort.

The patient also complained of discomfort and feeling of heaviness in the area of the swelling. His medical history was noncontributory. Extra oral examination revealed a diffuse swelling in the left lower mental region, measuring 2 × 1 cm. On palpation, the nature of the swelling was mobile, firm, and nontender. Intraorally it presented as a yellowish, oval swelling in the buccal left sulcus in relation to 34, 35 region (Figure 1). The covering mucosa was normal in texture without ulceration or inflammation.
