Lipoma is most common tumor of mesenchymal origin and is rarely seen in the oral and maxillofacial region. The etiology is still unknown. Various theories are given explaining the pathogenesis of adipose tissue tumor. Intraoral lipoma is a rare entity, painless and mostly diagnosed on a routine dental check-up. We report a case of intraoral lipoma on the buccal mucosa of a 60-year-old female patient with its ultrasonographic appearance in detail.
