Abstract

Background:

Lipoma is a benign neoplasm originated from adipose cells circumscribed by connective tissue. This neoplasm represents about 1% to 4.4% of all oral benign tumors and it is rarely located in the palate area.

Objective:

This case reports the occurrence of an oral lipoma in the hard palate of a 57-year-old woman and discusses its etiology and treatment.

Case Report:

The treatment consisted in the total resection of the lesion and laser therapy. The patient is being followed up for forty three months with no signs of recurrence.

Conclusion:

Lipoma in hard palate is a rare entity that may be associated with endocrine factors and local inflammation.

Keywords: Adipocytes, Benign Neoplasm, Lipoma, Mature Fat Cells, Mesenchymal Neoplasm.
