Among lipoma of oral cavity, fibrolipoma is one of the rare
histopathological variant. Intraoral lipomas are rare lesions which may
be discovered during routine dental examinations since they present as
slow growing, painless and asymptomatic masses. For definite diagnosis
histopathological examination plays a significant role in providing
successful treatment and preventing any malignant transformation.
Prognosis is generally good as recurrence is very rare. Here we present a
case of oral fibrolipoma of buccal mucosa.
This case report is one of the rare presentation of lipoma. So more
cases should be documented to make dental professionals aware of its
