Lipoma of the floor of the mouth is a benign and uncommun lesion in this location. It may be isolated or associated with multiple forms or a specific clinical entity. The symptoms are nonspecific and dependent on the volume of the lipoma. It is characterized by a very slow evolution and may reach large dimensions. The treatment is surgical. The histopathological study identifies the variety of lipoma. Recurrences are rare if the excision is complete and may be seen in specific forms (infiltrative lipoma and spindle cell lipoma).
