Journal Title:Acta Scientific Otolaryngology
Abstract


Epithelial tumors have predominance in the tongue but it is an uncommon location for lipoma, tumor of mesenchymal origin, be-nign, asymptomatic slow-growing, soft tissue neoplasm of mature adipocytes, that can be sessile or pediculated, single or lobed and surrounded by a thin fibrous capsule [1,2], rarely recurs after sur-gical treatment [2,3].
