Abstract

Lipoma of the tongue is an uncommon benign tumor, being even more rare when there are multiple lesions. Lipoma accounts for 1-5% of all oral neoplasms. Lipoma occurs predominantly in males over the age of forty, although, in rare cases, children can be affected. Here, we report an unusual case of a female patient with bilateral lingual lipomas that were treated through surgical excision.
