Tumors in the oral cavity and the adjacent structures are an important part of the stomatology because of the role that the oral cavity professional plays in the diagnosis and treatment of these lesions. Lipomas are benign neoplasias made up of adipose cells, extremely rare in the oral cavity. The buccal mucosa, tongue and floor of the mouth are some of the most common sites for these lipomas. The typical clinical case includes a painless tumor and a yellow sub mucosa. The chosen treatment is surgical removal. Recurrences are very rare. We present the clinical case of a 23 year old female with lingual lipoma that endangers the mid line of the dorsal tongue at the middle third.
