Chondrolipomas are benign mesenchymal tumors characterized by the proliferation of mature adipocytes associated with variable amounts of mature cartilaginous tissue. Herein, we describe a case of chondrolipoma of the tongue in a 35-year-old Indian male. The lesion presented as a nodular, sessile, pink mass on posterio-dorsal surface of left side of the tongue since approximately 20 years. Histopathologically, the mass revealed a well circumscribed, encapsulated proliferation of mature adipocytes with islands of well formed mature cartilaginous tissue. Chondrolipomas are uncommon in the oral cavity, with only 14 cases being reported in the English literature.
