Lipomas represent about 1 to 5% of all neoplasms of the oral cavity. Although relatively common, few large series of intraoral lipomas and its variants are seen in the literature. Therefore, the author presents the four cases of intra-oral lipoma with one case of histological variant of lipoma, the fibrolipoma. All lesions were removed surgically with the intra-oral approach and none showed recurrence.
