Nevin Büyükakyüz, Sertan Ergun, Murat Öztürk, Vakur Olgac


Lipoma is a benign tumor which consists of mature adipose tissue and represents the most commonly diagnosed mesenchymal neoplasm. It is the most common form of soft tissue tumor where as intraosseous lipomas are uncommon and are considered among the rarest benign primary tumors of bone. There are only few documented cases of central lipomas in the jaws. This report describes a rare case of mandibular intraosseous lipoma in the incisor area in a 48-year-old female patient and summarizes the related literature. In conclusion intraosseous lipoma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of other intraosseous lesions. The characteristic finding of this lesion is the presence of mature adipose fat cells and histologic examination is mandatory for the diagnosis.
