Abstract

Lipoma is a benign tumor composed of mature adipocytes and the most common soft tissue mesenchymal neoplasm but relatively rare in the oral cavity. Lipoma of the tongue is uncommon and especially multiple lipomas are quite rare and only several cases of those were reported. We describe an unusual case of multiple lipomas of the tongue.
