Author information

  • 1Department of Pathology, University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, Canada.


Lipomas are common neoplasms of fat in the oral cavity. However, the diagnosis may be difficult for lesions exhibiting unusual histological features. This paper documents the first intraoral report of a chondroid lipoma. The differential diagnosis is discussed. It is important for practicing oral pathologists to recognize rare variants to ensure accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment for the patient.
