Lipoma of Buccal Mucosa: Report of Two Cases and Literature Review

Lipomas are benign mesenchymal neoplasms composed of mature adipocytes, usually surrounded by a thin fibrous capsule. They are uncommon intraoral tumors with 1% to 4% occurring in this region. The literature is scanty on lipomas occurring in the buccal soft tissue. Here, we present two rare cases of lipoma occurring in the cheek of a 35-year old and a 45 year-old male. These were excised extra-orally. Histopathologically, these lesions were composed of the mature adipocytes with clear cytoplasm. There has been no evidence of tumor recurrence postoperatively.
