The lip­o­ma is a com­mon ­benign neo­plasm of ­the adi­pose tis­sue. It ­occurs in ­the sub­cu­ta­ne­ous ­and sub­mu­co­sal tis­sues, main­ly in ­adults, in ­almost ­all ­regions of ­the ­body includ­ing ­many ­oral ­sites. It is typ­i­cal­ly a sol­i­tary, ­slow-grow­ing, asymp­to­mat­ic ­lesion ­which is usu­al­ly treat­ed by con­ser­va­tive sur­gi­cal exci­sion ­and rare­ly ­recurs. Very ­few cas­es of intra­os­seous lip­o­ma ­are ­described in ­the lit­er­a­ture. Intraosseous depos­its of adi­pose tis­sue ­have ­been report­ed in sev­er­al ­bones, ­such as ­the ­femur, fib­u­la, tib­ia, ­ulna, cal­can­eus, fron­tal ­bone ­but rare­ly in ­the ­jaw ­bones.
