We present an extremely rare case of noninfiltrating angiolipoma (AL) of the buccal mucosa in a 90-year-old patient reaching a size of 14 cm × 10 cm. AL is rare in the soft tissues of oral cavity, and till date, only 22 cases have been reported, including our case. If size be taken into consideration, our case can be considered to be the first in literature to reach this massive size. Surgical excision of the tumor mass was performed. The histopathological findings confirmed the diagnosis of noninfiltrating AL. Follow-up for 1 year revealed no signs of recurrence.
