Liposarcoma of the oral cavity is very rare. The difficulty in clinical and histopatologic differentiation of these oral lipomatous lesions have been recognized by several authors. The aim of this article is to present a case report of a well-differentiated lipoma-like liposarcoma of the tongue, in a 36-year-old woman, and to review the existing literature.
