Lipomas are benign neoplasm of adipocytes, but are rarely seen in oral cavity, representing 1% of all benign tumors. Hence, correct histopathological examination of lipomas is important. Fibro-lipoma is one of the rare variant of the lipoma, and very few cases have been reported in the oral cavity. This article describes a case of 60-year-old female with fibro-lipoma of the buccal mucosa. The diagnosis and differentiation of fibro-lipoma with clinically similar lesions such as fibroma, mucocele, and pleomorphic adenoma are very essential for a correct treatment plan and complete follow-up.
