Lipoma is the most common mesenchymal tumor seen in the trunk and extremities. It is rarely found in the mouth. Clinically, it resembles other lesions and is not considered in the initial diagnosis. Histopathological evaluation is needed for accurate diagnosis. Surgical excision is the main treatment modality. Histologically, many variants are described of which fibrolipoma is thought to have some recurrence. This article describes a case of fibrolipoma of the buccal mucosa in a geriatric patient.
