Abstract

The oral cavity is an uncommon site for a true lipoma. A distinct histological variant is the spindle cell lipoma. This is a rare oral lesion. A case of an intra-oral spindle cell lipoma in a 55-year-old female is reported, a differential diagnosis is presented and the histopathology is discussed.

CLINICAL RELEVANCE:

An oral swelling is a common presenting complaint and requires further investigation.
