Lipomas are soft tissue tumors of adipose tissue origin. They may be single or multiple and may occur as superficial or deep-seated tumors. Solitary lipomas, consisting entirely of mature fat have stirred little interest in the past and have been largely ignored in the Literature. Approximately 15% to 20% of lipomas occur in the head and neck but the oral cavity is an unusual site.
